George McGovern (1922-2012)

in The Year Book I wrote abt attending the Columbus Day parade in NYC in 1972:

soon smiling Senator McGovern marched up Fifth Ave.
waving to the indifferent crowd while young people
followed him in the street chanting "stop the war"

& a month later:

marked X for McGovern


after writing the above I rememberd I had a souvenir from the time I saw McGovern.  it took me a while to unearth it but here's the flyer I've had for 40 years now.
