Ain't No Power Like...

I love pop-up books like this and books that feature ephemera like this. That's just one of the reasons I'm enjoying Project 1968. The blog chronicles the experiences of two women up to and during the 1968 Democratic Convention. Laura calls her new work a blog docu-novel. Check it out. It's an innovative use of the blog medium and an informative, entertaining read.
I think of something Albert Camus once said: he said beware of all veterans. And he didn't just mean war veterans, he meant anti-war veterans, veterans of our movement. Because although as one gets older one has certain insights and experiences to draw on, we're all scarred and conditioned by those experiences and by the times in which we were born and in which we live. And one of the things that I learned in the 60s and people like Clayton amongst others who taught me that was that every new generation comes along with new insights and new perspectives and that we really are all part of one another and all do need each other. - Dave Dellinger
