Carl from Carle Place Looks Back at Himself

It was a time when the most read bible was "The Whole Earth catalog"; J.I.Rodale's "Organic Gardening & Farming" promoted chemical-free farming and an awareness that everthing's connected to everything else; communes began to florish and soy became "tofu"; "Mother Earth News" raised our consciousness about ecological processes and the consequences of napalm and Agent Orange; Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring", "Diet for a Small Planet", and "Small is Beautiful" were becoming best-sellers; vegetarians became aware of "vegans" and they both embraced "Ahimsa". The year was 1975.
