Bush & Kissenger & Kent CT & Kent Ohio

I Saw Marine One Fly By, Heading Toward Kent CT:
I was working, driving through Torrington, CT when I saw the helicopters fly by on April 25th, 2008. My camera was on the seat behind me, driving through traffic, and couldn’t easily reach it to take a photo of the four choppers in the sky, two military escorts and two identical others exactly alike, the decoy and Marine One…
...so I lifted this picture from somewhere.

I had been thinking about the following Dave Rovics song ever since I'd heard about the visit and would have gone to Kent with “3,904 Miles to Nuremberg” printed on a sign, if I had been able to:

(Dave writes at his website: “YouTube Music videos from my DVD that Chris Chandler did and many other videos can be found there.)

Kent Ohio: The end of April and the beginning of May always make me think of Kent State in 1970:

I can’t imbed this:
“May 4th 1970, Kent State University: National Guard killed 4 students and wounded 9. Some of them who did not take part in any action at a 100 yds range.Start and end sequence of a 1 hr documentary special by Germany's WDR TV. Coverage originating from major U.S. networks. TV Teams of NBC, ABC and CBS had been present. Where has their material gone?
But you can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1H6DSzBlVk
