One thought on “Tracking…

  1. Just HAD to throw this in! (Notice my first headline teaser.)

    Tin soldiers and Nixon’s comin’.
    We’re finally on our own.

    Four dead in Ohio.

    What if you knew her and
    Found her dead on the ground?
    How can you run when you know?

    – Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young), partial lyrics to “Ohio.”
