nixon's weirdest day?

9 may 1970 where were you .......

"In the tense days following Kent State, impromptu rallies erupted all over the Washington region, and a major demonstration was planned for May 9 on the National Mall. Law enforcement entities went on hair-trigger alert, mobilizing all available resources including the entire D.C. police force and 5,000 locally-stationed troops.

“Henry Kissinger said Washington and the White House were besieged. There were district buses lined up around the White House for who knows what. The 82nd Airborne was in the basement of the Executive Office Building across the street.”

It was in this combustible atmosphere that an idea germinated in Richard Nixon’s muddled mind in the wee hours of May 9, 1970. It would prove to be one of the most bizarre incidents of his presidency, and that’s saying a lot."

2. kissinger's students have had important jobs ever since

my observation is that this has not necessarily been a good thing.

what must nixon, as a paranoid anti communist, have thought about the protests which defined his regime? fortunately we have the tapes with that answer.

3. I was at 600 feet under the North Atlantic

Lest we forget, the protests were entirely due to the fact that we were fighting a communist army.

4. i had forgotten ...

that would explain why conservatives were enlisting in large numbers rather than developing bone spurs.

might also explain why so many of us returned and protested.
