    I think Sally is going to be one of those rebellious girls who wind up with the "wrong crowd" Considering the times, she will probably run away and become a hippie. Either wind up in SF or at Woodstock. Then have substance abuse issues. That's where I see this going. How old is she now?

    I don't know, she seems way too snooty to be a hippy.

    I see her as the neurotic New Yorker in perpetual therapy ala Annie Hall myself.

    Woodstock is a year away. She is 14 now. I don't see that happening.

    I look at her as Alice in Whit Stilman's Last Days of Disco

    Maybe now, but I can see Sally changing. Perhaps I could see a 'turn on, tune in, drop out' attitude coming. I think she is starting to reach her limit for the crap in her life, or at least peripheral to her, to the extent that she'd drop the snootiness and find a way to fit in to the current culture.

    I think the real question is how soon before she hooks up with Glenn.

    Yeah, it seems like if next season takes place over the summer of 1969, a Sally-goes-to-Woodstock plot is unavoidable.

    My father wasn't a hippie by any stretch of the imagination, but he went to Woodstock -- saw it advertised at his local record store in New Jersey, bought a 3-day advance ticket (never collected at the gate, so he still has it). He's a few years older than Sally, though.

    But if Sally is going to boarding school next season and hanging out with those older girls, I don't have any doubt that they'll take her with them to Woodstock.

    Isn't the school in upstate NY? Maybe not a hippie, but I could definitely see her going there. I'm sure there were plenty of 15 year old girls there

    Miss Porter's is in Connecticut. But it's still not very far from Woodstock.
