Dear Sixties People:

I have a very distinct memory of being in an English class in college, I
assume it was 1969, although it might have been '68. Anyway, we were about
to discuss our readings when a student raised his hand and asked if we
could spend a little time discussing the war in Vietnam. The professor
apologized, like a well-meaning liberal should, but said that we had to
cover the material on the syllabus. Our disappointment was palpable.
