    I was 10 years old. MLK, Jr. and Bobby, both lost to all of us; a summer of violence and angst and anger and Yuppies and Weather Underground, the first "peace" candidate in McCarthy, the year of the Tết Offensive, the first live TV broadcast from space (Apollo 7). A year yet until Woodstock and a man on the moon.

    Do I remember 1968? I know I do.
    Will we all remember this year? Bloody fuckin' likely.

    Great diary, oh, as always!

    How we spend our days, of course, is how we spend our lives. - Annie Dillard
