Walter was just a bit amazed, then shocked to see three school buses of hippies from UC Berkeley show up one Saturday morning along with a helicopter and three camera crews.
Walter stood forlornly looking on as 125 hippies took off their clothes and recreated the scene of Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.
