    THE PRESENT DAY

    —Did you hear the news, Mr. President? The students at the University of Pittsfield are walking out of their classes, in protest over the war.

    —(spits out coffee) Wha— What did you say?

    —Apparently, students are standing up in the middle of lectures and walking right out of the building.

    —But students love lectures. If they’re willing to give those up, they must really be serious about this peace thing! How did you hear about this protest?

    —The White House hears about every protest, no matter how small.

    —Oh, right, I remember.

    —You haven’t heard the half of it, Mr. President. The leader of the group says that if you don’t stop the war today they’re going to . . . to . . . I’m sorry, I can’t say it out loud. It’s just too terrifying.

    —Say it, damn it! I’m the President!

    —All right! If you don’t stop the war . . . they’re going to stop going to school for the remainder of the week.

    —Send the troops home.

    —But, Mr. President! Shouldn’t we talk about this?

    —Send the troops home.



    THE NINETEEN-SIXTIES

    —Mr. President! Did you hear about Woodstock?

    —Woo— Woodstock? What in God’s name is that?

    —Apparently, young people hate the war so much they’re willing to participate in a musical sex festival as a protest against it.

    —Oh, my God. They must really be serious about this whole thing.

    —That’s not all. Some of them are threatening to join communes: places where they make their own clothing . . . and beat on drums.

    —Stop the war.

    —But, Mr. President!

    —Stop all American wars!

    —(sighs) Very well, sir. I’ll go tell the generals.

    —Wow. It’s a good thing those kids decided to go hear music.
