The Father/Mother


Leonard Bushkoff's "The Father/Mother" vignette, chronicling his move from "a smug Detroit suburb to mid-Cambridge shabbiness" as "the troubled sixties turned into the confusing seventies." The counterculture for most of us now exists only in the form of dim memories of a time when the promise of America lost its spiritual luster. That generation is now shaping our future, still groping for a beacon that will renew the promise, that would truly herald the progress of "a kinder, gentler nation."
