Back In The U.S.S.A.

I find an ironic laugh pouring forth when I hear some reporter in his most sanctimonious voice say that the government of Iran dealt with protesters in the way they usually do: with violence.

I laugh because indelibly in my mind are images of U.S. citizens protesting on American soil, in American cities being beaten bloody with the clubs of police.

And then there’s Kent State. We even have a song about it. Four dead in Ohio…

I guess it’s it’s easy to be sanctimonious when we forget our immediate past.
