Remember the 1968 Democratic Convention

in Chicago? Amazing, isn't it, that it's nearly 40 years ago to the day. Who can forget the tsunami of our discontent? Not just with the war in Vietnam, but with all the vestigial lies, and gratuitous distortions we've come to associate with how governments are run.

Only a year or two later, I joined J.M. Coetzee, and others, who were staging a sit-in at the administration building of the State University of New York Buffalo campus.

Am I dating myself? You got a better suggestion?
