Pining for a 'Kent State Moment'

I was just saying to a friend the other day that the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters around the country are probably pining for a Kent State moment. That is they're trying desperately to relive the '60s, to be part of a true grassroots movement, and to make of themselves victims and martyrs. Lo and behold, Donny Deutsch at MSNBC has said the same thing.

Kramer vs. Khalidi
