    person with a sign outside the gates. As we found out later, it made him launch into an invective-laced rant ending with orders to have that person removed. It led me to believe that it was a very effective thing to so.

      which documentary was about LBJ being inside the White House while the protesters were outside chanting "Hey hey LBJ..." and how he could hear it, etc.  

      allenjo and I were talking about the LBJ chants and protests last night.  I know the general info about the protests, but I don't know many specifics. That's an area I'd like to research and learn more about.  I lived through it, but was in kindergarten in '65, and obviously too young for the later protests too, but I was very aware of it and affected by it.  I want to dig into it.  I know there are a ton of books, writing and documentaries.  

      Just found this guy on YouTube

      How The Vietnam War Affected America

      I am very proud of the television series I made for PBS called Making Sense of the Sixties. I had the chance to spend a year examining my youth and how I became an active member of the 60s generation. If you are from that generation or a child of the 60s, I think you would find the entire series of value. To see my other work visit www.theHoffmancollection.com
