Things people wish they hadn't said on the radio...

Excerpt from NPR's All Thing Considered report:

. . .

RABINOWITZ: But some Kent State University students, like Max Dunzik(ph), question whether they're being saturated with observances of an event that's no longer relevant.

Mr. MAX DUNZIK (Student, Kent State University): It starts to lose its luster after a while. Maybe like every 10, it's sweet, but the 41st, the 42nd, the 43rd, the 44th, like after a while, it's like okay, we get it.

. . . 

Oh yeah, that is "sweet" and we are sooooo glad you "get it".

kent state

What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

"It's still hard to believe I had to write this song. It's ironic that I capitalized on the death of these American students. Probably the most important lesson ever learned at an American place of learning. 

David Crosby cried after this take."
