(Hair on fire, screaming? I had no idea that this what I was up to when 
I passed out leaflets for an antiwar demonstration. I guess maybe he was 
referring to the Weathermen but who knows.)

But at the convention, it’s the lack of fire that most impresses 
Williams. “As I look around the room, I think the people are much more 
thoughtful than we were in the 1960s,” he says. “There’s no one here 
with their hair on fire, screaming. People are rationally thinking 
through important matters, drawing their own conclusions, and 
outstripping us on a lot of this stuff.”
