    was from Pittsburgh.  Her father was still alive when I was back living there in the early 90s, and knew people who knew him well.  By then he was also well known by people in various peace groups.  He was still saddened, still trying to get answers, and felt he owed it to his daughter to stand up for peace.

    And let's not forget the black students who were killed at Jackson State a few days later.  I was in the middle of a building occupation at another college in the midwest then.  One of my compatriots in that later became the White House Chief of Staff.  I'll let you guess which one.

    Tear gas.  I can't remember how many times I got that.
