The Shadow of Chicago:

A few commentators have made this analogy- NYC 2004 = Chicago '68. But that begs the next question: what exactly happened at the Democratic National Convention in 1968? The myth is pretty well known, of course: Yippies; the police riot; Mayor Daley; "the whole world is watching!"; the battle on the convention floor. The details, however, tend to get lost in the iconic images. It might not be a bad idea for activists to reaquaint themselves with the events of that fateful summer.
