A quick memory of 1968, a time of enormous division.
I knew most of the people heading the various campaigns on the University of Arizona campus. It was quite a mixture because it was pre-primary season. There were student groups for Eugene McCarthy, Robert Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey, Richard Nixon, Eldridge Cleaver, and George Wallace.
Now here is a jarring contrast with today's college campuses. Most of the people leading those campaigns knew one another and - get this - they were friendly and got along.
Nothing abusive was said. No one would have thought of shouting down or barring a speaker.
The idea was to let people hear opposing sides and make up their own minds.
Yeah, I know. Very strange.
