NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
— The 1960s all over again? History isn’t quite repeating, but our tumultuous time does rhyme with that one in some strange ways – Todd Gitlin  (DIERSEN: What were you doing during 1968? I was a full-time student at UIC and a part-time Park Forest Post Office employee; I lived with my parents and bother in Crete; I sold my 1968 Oldsmobile 442 and bought a 1969 Dodge Charger SE; and I saved money for college expenses at NIU.)
http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/todd-gitlin-1960s-article-1.2704848
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Here’s what happened within four months in 1968: Eighty thousand North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops seized the initiative by attacking some 100 cities and towns in a war that the Pentagon kept insisting was all but won. An unrepentant racist declared his candidacy for President of the United States. Having been challenged by two sitting senators, one of them the brother of the murdered former President, President Lyndon Johnson took himself out of the running for a second term. One killer murdered Martin Luther King, Jr. Another one murdered Bobby Kennedy, who just won California’s Democratic primary. And after a wave of urban riots, or rebellions, or whatever you wanted to call them, Americans stockpiled guns. Lunatic fringes thrived in the heart of established institutions. What was the war in Vietnam in the first place, after all, if not a lunatic war? What was the casual police beating of black motorists? Moods followed events. Events that had taken place in the dark, backstage, were now onscreen in living rooms. Nothing felt normal. Americans woke up every morning thinking, My God, what next? Jefferson Airplane had already recorded the line: “Logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead.” Was it the end of times? The apocalypse? The revolution? The counterrevolution? From day to day, all that was predictable was that something unpredictable was on its way from hell.)
