Coincidence or clever marketing?

 

This is an interesting item to discuss for how it reveals attitudes and events that have shaped the modern American mindset and culture.  Also, Kent State is an historical reference our students should know about.

 

One can also question Urban Outfitters capitalizing ($129!!) for a shirt found at a thrift shop. Is that what they are doing?
