  •  Thomas Merton called 1968 "a beast of a year" (1+ / 0-)

    Tragically, he died that December, too.  Merton was a pen pal w/ Ethel Kennedy, and he was planning a retreat w/ MLK at the time of his assassination.  

    And oh, BTW, there was a little dust-up at the DNC that August, the New Deal coalition broke up for good, and Nixon got elected.  It was not a good year.

    I share your view of coincidences.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
