Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Yeah, but was the grip pearl or ivory? Only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl- handled pistol.

I was at OSU at that time...crazy time..very chaotic...gosh were we naive about the world and politics. Great music though.

I was a very young mother at the time, and remember the shock to my sense of reality, by not only Kent State, but all the other horrible acts committed by my peers.

And, you are right that these evil self-centered fools decided to infiltrate and take over all of our institutions (even the girl scouts, for heaven’s sake).

My husband was teaching at SUNY-Buffalo in the early 70s, and we were ostracized by the younger fellow professors because we didn’t smoke pot, and didn’t want to take part in demonstrations and civil disobedience.

Sometimes I wonder why we stood by and watched the mayhem in silence. My guess is that we just couldn’t believe it, and assumed that it was a temporary aberration.

We guessed wrong.

Yeah, Apr 15, tax filings due, Shitler's birthday Apr20, earth day, Oh and Apr 8, the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron's 715th home run breaking Ruth's record, who knows if that has anything to do with the craziness?

I’ll be curious to find out if this turns out to be accurate. IIRC, they locked down a campus after some idiot students called 911 to report hearing shots, next to a active contsruction site. Turns out it was a loud bang from the workers.

You laugh but there is something weird about April, especially middle. April 19 alone - Lexington, Baltimore riots against federals, Waco, OK City. Titanic sank that week, Lincoln shot, Ft. Sumter, etc. It is a significantly dangerous week.

We were heavily pressured to “participate”, and yes, I was worried that he might have been “scathed” for his quiet reluctance.

I am surprised that you remember, for you were only 7, if I remember right.

Here is an article, with some photos of the protesting going on.

You shoulda seen the absurd Tweet that shitbird Morgan posted. Well, here it is: Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan 'If only there'd been a good guy with a gun...' - such crap. This #FortHood soldier/shooter WAS a good guy. Until he turned bad, with a gun. My reply to him: @piersmorgan What a genius u are! Pls save us stupid Americans from good guys. Who should we turn to? Do gays have special anti-gun vibes??

I distinctly recall hearing about riots at UB and how you were worried about him getting home okay. Angela and I would watch the car headlights coming toward our apartment on Main St. from our bedroom window, trying to figure out if each car was a white VW bug or not.
