We remember that Warsaw Pact tanks were crushing the people of Prague this week in 1968.    Like Hungary 1956, the USSR did not tolerate dissent in any of its satellite states.    

Over here, “People got to be free” by The Rascals was #1 on Billboard USA.  It spent much of the month of August as the most popular song of that summer.    

It was a pop song for us and a wish for the people of Prague.
