1. I've been listening...very interesting

Dennis Kucinich, Elaine Wellin (an eyewitness), and an acoustics expert all raising disturbing questions about the tragedy.

3. I believe this will only be available for two weeks in the archives.

Sounds like agent provocateurs set fire to the ROTC and fired shots before the Nat. Guard fired.

4. That has long been suspected, and now there is new evidence supporting that conclusion.

6. I was going on 14 when that happened.

I was already against the war - that I got from RFK when I was a mere lad - but Kent State scared the living hell out of me. My dad told me he'd help me get to Canada if the war was still going on when I hit draft age and that calmed me down.

7. "Ohio" Lyrics by Neil Young

"Ohio"
Lyrics by Neil Young

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

9. My brother-in-law's uncle was a roommate of one of the fatalities;

William Schroeder- He was in the ROTC and was just walking to class. The roommate (b-i-l's uncle, with whom I've shared a couple of big Thanksgiving dinners), said he was present soon after Schroeder was shot, and he could hear the gurgling in Schroeder's lungs.
