1. Our local community station plays it every year

At that time thousands of us are in the space that song takes you to.
Even now, in this year, we are confronted with unreasonable authority and predudice. This is the song that addressed these for all peoples and brings us all a sense of empowerment as JOY.
Eat well and celebrate, we are all dining at Alice's today and you CAN get anything you want!

2. As part of the hippie generation, we thought the film was great.

But, as we got older and watching the film again in middle age, we found ourselves siding with the authorities on the garbage dumping. It was no longer funny to us.

5. Perfect reflection

What I thought and felt 50+ years ago is not exactly how I feel about it now too.

Somethings have changed, but not much.

I still use the phrase implements of destruction and the group W label for my ultimate insult to people.

6. I agree..

It is not Thanksgiving without Alice's Restaurant.
I have the cookbook. She makes some kick ass stroganoff.
