  •  headline of 2 (3?) guardsmen killed (2+ / 0-)

    I think it was the Kent (town) newspaper and there may even have been early Cleveland editions that said there were 2 or 3 guardsmen killed. This was widely reported early that afternoon.

    Hmmmm.... Wonder why someone wanted to plant that misinformation. And you don't suppose they had it ready to go because they knew there would be some deaths? Hmmmm......

    And, MitchVance, thanks for your extended memories. Did you show a local (Kent) identification at the highway patrol road block? That, I've always thought, was the only way people were allowed in.
