MLK assassinated. (4 April) Robert Kennedy assassinated. (4/5 June) Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia, ending the Prague Spring. (20 August) Nixon elected. (5 November)It was the year I became politically aware, but I don't miss it. I'd prefer to witness no assassinations this year. The mess in the Middle East is bad enough already - please: no surprise escalations! ... and PLEASE: could we possibly NOT elect The Donald!
