Notes for Thursday – May 04, 2017

SurvivalBlog readers will notice some changes in our look this morning. We’ve been listening to our readership over the last year and have compiled a list of desired formatting options that they want to see. Primarily, you’ll notice we are now in a two column format. This gives us a bit more editorial space so things like tables are formatted better. There are other changes so we invite you to explore the site.

Important Anniversaries

On May 4, 1970, Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire [1] on anti-war protesters at Kent State University, killing four students and wounding nine others.

Also on this day in 1994, Israeli Prime Minister Rabin and PLO leader Arafat signed an accord on Palestinian autonomy. The accord granted self-rule in the Gaza Strip and Jericho. The world believed that this created  peace at last in the Middle East. Of course, the Palestinians then, as now, threw away the peace agreement and resumed hostilities towards Israel.
