Today In Fifty Years Ago Today

A hell of a day no matter which side of the planet you were stuck on:
Wounded and shocked civilian survivors of Dong Xoai crawl out of a fort bunker [sic] on June 6, 1965, where they survived the murderous ground fighting and air bombardments of the last two days. Horst Faas/AP
Klan Rally. Knights of the Ku Klux Klan march in a circle around a 50-foot burning cross on June 6, 1965, as approximately 2,500 watched the closing ceremony of the rally near Trenton, North Carolina. AP
What happened to the America of D-Day? When did the anti-bully become the bully? Gawd damn America indeed!
