We even used to cite that event as an indefensible example of bourgeois tastelesness when arguing the moral superiority of Marxism with our parents when we were High School students in Pacific Palisades in 1968.
Dude, things must have changed in Pali between 1968 and my time at Pali high in the mid-80s! We tended to argue about important things: BMW vs. Mercedes; Maui 'wowie' vs. Humboldt Gold, etc.
I graduated Pali in Winter 1970 (The Aquarians); how 'bout you?
Of course, back then we had a draft with a one-way ticket to some nice big war-games our parents had arranged in SE Asia upon graduation if you didn't head off to college or end up with a high draft lottery number (my best friend got #365, which was good but not perfect; 1970 was a leap year, after all...)
Aquarians? Hippies. By Summer 1986, we were the Dolphins.
Not so much of a draft problem then. I once knew a guy that served in Grenada. That's about the same though.
No, dude, I'm talking about Pali class nicknames---Pali itself was always the Dolphins, even when it opened in 1965, but each graduating class had to select it's own identifying name. In winter 1970, it was a close vote: 78 for Aquarians, 68 for Bacchanalians (hey---that was my vote!), 34 for "Stoned Dopers." The Age of Aquarius hippies narrowly won. See; 15 years later things didn't change much...
Me---I served in the Grenada invasion too as Navy Doc running a surgical support team---probably the only other Pali grad who did.
About that time Jay Schroeder was playing High School football there; he later led the Redskins and ultimately the Raiders in the NFL, all the way to the 1990 AFC Championsip game as starting NFL QB. Lotsa interesting grads from that High School over the years. (Don't even ask about Jennifer Bogart and her affair with the MASH actor Elliot Gould during her High School career when I was there...)
