This is the second of a two-part editorial in the Greenfield Recorder published shortly after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr (April ,1968) The contrast between the hope of King's "I have a Dream" speech and his murder five years later is stark., The editors predict "widespread disorder" during the coming summer. In an election year they even predict the assassination of a Presidential candidate and suggest that the national party conventions "may be the scenes of blood baths." Presidential candidate Robert Kennedy was killed a few months later in California and the Democratic convention in Chicago was the scene of bloody rioting.
