the '68 office. I walked from the university campus to the statehouse. The three running were Nixon, Humphrey and Wallace. The place was crawling with loud youth whom I'll only describe as being attired for the day. The candidate was giving some speech on the steps but between the cheering on one side and booing on the other, I heard not an audibly intelligible sound. That was my first year of voter eligibility and how I was introduced to our electoral process....and it's gone downhill ever since.
