Yeah, I remember that! As if there was any decent acid around by that time.
But I remember the Nat'l Guard boys as being just that....scared boys who
really didn't want to be there. In fact I remember one " defecting " during
skrimmage, once. I was most impressed by the courage he showed.
As for the large corporations and their manipulations...I remember walking
streets one morning about 5 AM, and up on Telegraph and Bancroft a State of
Calif dump truck pulls up and drops a load of rocks on the street corner.
My understanding was that they were trying to force the small business
out by jacking up their insurence rates ( via broken glass).
