Viet Cong offensive against US base Da Nang, begins. The Supreme Court of the United States decides on Griswold v. Connecticut, effectively legalizing the use of contraception by married couples. “Mariner IV” sends back 1st pictures of Mars. Bob Dylan is booed by sections of the crowd at the Newport Folk Festival for performing with an electric guitar. Cigarette advertising banned on British TV. Morley Safer’s sends 1st Vietnam report indicating the US is losing. Race riot in West Side of Chicago. India invades West Pakistan – official beginning of the Indo-Pakistani War. Pope Paul VI proclaims Jews not collectively guilty for the crucifixion. Supremes release “My World is Empty Without You”. And these poems about those times.
