Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Is it getting better?

Thirty-six years ago today National Guardsmen fired on Vietnam War protestors at Kent State University. I suppose we should be thankful that Bush doesn't know any history, or he might think this is a pretty good idea.

I mentioned the event last year, but I'm doing so again because this is one anniversary that really saddens me. Here and here are sites devoted to the events of the days around 4 May 1970. And, of course, the Wikipedia entry.

I always remember the date. I didn't blog about it, in part because I don't think I have anything fresh to say, and in part because I was away.

But I'm glad you did post.

In school, we were once forced to watch some sort of hippie re-enactment of this event that was so bad people in my class actually clapped when the shooting started. One of the great challenges of a historical lesson is the people who tell it.
