The so-called challenges of the 21th century getting you down? Then go back to THE SIXTIES with ME.
I recall 1968 well. I turned twelve on the very day TET commenced in January. Mr. Malone, my sixth grade teacher at our mild-mannered central Ohio school, went nuclear soon afterwards. "Back to the stone-age with those gooks!", he declared before thirty stuned pre-adolescent youths. I thot, "What the...?" It was a reaction I continued to have constantly throughout that year:
LBJ wimps out... "What the...?" MLK assassinated... "What the...?" Bobby goes down... "What the...?" Chicago rages on national TV... "What the...?"
p.s. Thank God for Woody. My Buckeyes won the national championship in 1968. No "What the...?" as the new year 1969 began. Thank God, thank God Almighty for Woody Hayes in 1968! :)
