WASHINGTON --Whether it is history or nostalgia, or both, news feeds on anniversaries. Last week it was the fall of Saigon 25 years ago. This week it will be the killings at Kent State University in Ohio 30 years ago on May 4, 1970 -- and in my mind that is a far more important event to remember and study. The first mentions of Kent State that I have seen in this wave of anniversary journalism have treated the "incident" as a tragedy, but it was more than that; it was almost a flashpoint in American history, something like John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry.
