Seeing as how it's Democratic Convention time, I thought it'd be good to look back at the infamous 1968 convention, held right here in Chicago. This site has a good, quick overview of the events of that fateful week, as well as a good list of links. Paul Sequiera took photos of the riots, and of course the CPL has a whole presentation for you -- in their "disasters" section.
