Having one of those moments where I cannot believe how fucking stupid I am. I’m watching a PBS special called something like “The Day the 60s Died” and it’s about how Vietnam and foreign policy were affecting student protesting on campuses, specifically Kent State.
Guys, I always thought Kent State was the university where the tragedy was the guy shooting in at students from the clocktower. Not the goddamned National Guard opening fire on the students.
So, yeah. If can combine gobsmacked, embarrassed, and angry into one emotion, that’s about where I’m at.
Thanks education for stopping modern American history with Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination!
