On May 1, I left the county to spend a couple of days with some of my U.S. Naval Academy classmates in Oregon. It always helps to get together with old friends and to re-zero the historical reference points in your life. For those of us in my generation, some of those points were the election and the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Cuban missile crisis, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F.
