Just a reminder that age and wisdom are not related. Stupid young people grow up to be stupid old people.
Also good to keep in mind that while many people were sober and responsible all through the 1960s and beyond, at least some of the “sweet old people” we will be seeing were likely to have been dancing in the mud at Woodstock and marveling at the psychedelic colors oozing out of their fingertips. All old people look quiet and respectable. But some of them have lived wild and irresponsible lives and just never grew up and never got wisdom.
