Hmm. I'm neither old nor young; I'm dead center on the life spectrum. I know a lot of people from both ends, and I have to say your generalization is pretty weak when compared to reality. Forty years after the 60's, the older generation is the one that invented the drug culture, and most of the ones I know have neither forgotten nor forsaken it, and they absolutely love the show.
If you're young, I know it's easy to be xenophobic about a group that really is pretty alien to you. I clearly remember being that way. Heck, they're alien to me sometimes, too. However, you should do more research before pigeonholing a huge mass of people. Nancy Reagan's politics didn't define the generation.
