Lots of Canadian content on my Random 10 today-- and that's a good thing. Gordon Lightfoot, most of The Band (Levon Helms was the sole Yank) and Leonard Cohen. Maybe it's because I posted earlier in the week about a road trip I took to Toronto 20 years ago.
I was hoping that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's "Ohio" would miraculously pop up on my Random 10-- it's about the Kent State Killings, which happened 37 years ago today, on May 4, 1970. It also would have added one more Canadian, Neil Young, to the mix.
If I can get my lesson plans done, and enough of my students have given themselves the day off today, I'll post about Kent State.
