I take exception to the illogic displayed in columnist Marta H. Mossburg's recent commentary ("Biology really is destiny," April 25). She clearly understands nothing about women who oppose restrictions on contraceptives. Some of us think a prescription drug package on our health insurance should cover this prescription drug even if our employer thinks it shouldn't. And since when is a prescription drug plan "free?" Since when did employers belong between patients and their doctors?

“Hair,” the counterculture musical that stirred the pot, so to speak, in 1968, is very much a product of its time - Vietnam, dropping out, dropping acid, free love, Hare Krishna. Dated it may be, but it's got something timeless going on, too, as the enjoyable revival by the Stillpointe Theatre Initiative reiterates. Today's young generation may have no fear of a draft and no great interest in where or why our military is fighting now, but the antiwar message in “Hair” can still hit home.

Baltimore (or is it Phoenixville, Pa. now?) hip-hop act A Cool Stick appropriately dropped the new video for "Hippie Girl" today, the Prop 19 -enthusiast's holiday. The track is a surprisingly detailed stoner-meets-hippie narrative with "rollin' on the caps," "really fat blunts" and free love. If drugs aren't your thing ("Good for you," says this dog ), "Hippie Girl" should still hit right on a beautiful day. ("Stuck-up bitches" should avoid.) Download the song here .

Virgins. They aren't just in the Bible anymore.ENo, they are in the malls, in our high schools, on television and, in Baltimore, they are plastered on billboards.You may not have met them yet, but you will. Militant virgins. They are in-your-face abstainers of the 1990s. They practice chastity with an attitude. Their slogan could be: Pure and proud.Now don't get the idea that teen-age virginity has swept the nation like a giant tidal wave of morality. This is a trend that isoozing its way through the country.

In 2010, your initial reaction to the iconic '60s musical "Hair" might be a yawn. A show without a plot to speak of? They've long been a dime a dozen. Nudity? Please. Some seasons, you can't find a show without it. Someone in drag? See previous answer. Anti-establishment preachy-ness? As if we've ever run out of that. Heck, even hip-hugging jeans are back. But, as last year's Tony Award-winning Public Theater revival makes plain, there's a force churning beneath the "American Tribal Love Rock Musical" that can jolt even jaded theatergoers out of condescension and ennui.

Chaja is struggling with plenty of excess baggage - and that doesn't even include the missing suitcases that her father buried at the height of World War II, suitcases that contain her family's fortune. Director Jeroen Krabbe's Left Luggage is about Chaja's struggles to remain true to a faith that seems to have little to do with her life as a philosophy student in the early 1970s, the era of free love and free thinking. The film is a thoughtful, but by no means somber, look at an issue that might strike a particular chord with Jews.

Did Jesus recommend self-castration? Some of the 39 Heaven's Gate members who began committing suicide a fortnight ago seem to have thought so.Autopsies have revealed that eight of the 18 male suicides, including the cult leader, had indeed been castrated.On the Internet, the cult cited the 12th verse of the 19th chapter of Matthew's Gospel where Jesus is quoted as saying: "There are eunuchs who are born so from their mother's womb; and there are eunuchs who are made so by men; and there are eunuchs who have made themselves so for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.

As a send-up of '60s spy films, "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" is fitfully funny, particularly in an opening street scene that imagines "A Hard Day's Night" as the latest James Bond film, providing the movie with a peak it never approaches again.As played by Mike Myers (desperately trying to prove he can do something other than "Wayne's World"), Powers is the geekiest secret agent imaginable, and the joke is that women find him sexually irresistible.But when his nemesis, Dr. Evil (Myers again)

So now openly gay soldiers get to fight and die in neocon-imperialist wars too? David Brooks saw such ironic progressive victories coming. In his book "Bobos in Paradise," he wrote that everything "transgressive" gets "digested by the mainstream bourgeois order, and all the cultural weapons that once were used to undermine middle-class morality ... are drained of their subversive content. " Two decades ago, the gay left wanted to smash the bourgeois prisons of monogamy, capitalistic enterprise and patriotic values and bask in the warm sun of bohemian "free love" and avant-garde values.
