Look down a list of the historic figures and world events of 1968 and it's like looking at the lyrics of a Billy Joel song: Tet Offensive, MLK/RFK and LBJ/Yippies, Hippies, DNC/Prague Spring and French May. If you had a nickel for every time you've watched a video montage of images from 1968 set to the music of Buffalo Springfield's For What It's Worth, you'd have an awful lot of nickels, but Buffalo Springfield never made it to #1, and the popstrological firmament in the year of your birth was nowhere near as tumultuous as the temporal world into which you came. And while it's probable that this fact made the fourth and final Beatles generation a bit more detached from reality than the average popstrological class, it probably also made the children of 1968 capable of weathering life's storms with an inner calm that can only come from not noticing the storms in the first place.
