Ducks In A Barrel

Hey, Formerly Gray Lady publisher Pinch Sulzberger! Giving a commencement address? Don't forget to mention Vietnam and Watergate! And how wonderfully ethical you Boomers are.
When I graduated from college in 1974, my fellow students and I had just ended the war in Vietnam and ousted President Nixon. Okay, that's not quite true. Yes, the war did end and yes, Nixon did resign in disgrace but maybe there were larger forces at play.Either way, we entered the real world committed to making it a better, safer, cleaner, more equal place. We were determined not to repeat the mistakes of our predecessors. We had seen the horrors and futility of war and smelled the stench of corruption in government.
Right. Carry on then.
