The way I remember Kent State was that there were a bunch of nervous, green troops who got twitchy trigger finger when rocks were thrown at them. I was taught that it was best not to throw rocks at nervous people with guns.

Jay-as I scribbled to Jim P above-they, the students (one of whom I just saw rabble-rousing again lately) had been warned (not cautioned) MANY times that there would be serious consequences if they persisted. They PERSISTED!

My point is National Guard troops did shoot unarmed students, they could have retreated. At the time I couldn't stand the loud mouth leftist's. Different time I guess.

that's how I remember Kent State too. the Guardsmen were in the right.
and there were only FOUR of them against a mob.

Everyone can imagine the horror of a madman shooting up an elementary school, especially the horror of losing your six-year-old in the melee. But at some point, the news media's wallowing in Newtown reminds one of Don Henley's satirical song "Dirty Laundry," and how the anchors' eyes gleam through plane-crash news because "it's interesting when people die; we love dirty laundry."

The "O" word that defines the media at times like these isn't "objective." It's "opportunistic."

To be sure, the "news" manufacturers aren't hoping for a school shooting. But that doesn't mean they aren't ready to exploit it. Newsweek columnist...
