The Yin Yang Conspiracy

Published:

 

 

In 1970, the University of Texas was squared off against itself.  The frats, the student government, the sororities, the administration, the ROTC department, and the cops on the one side, and us on the other.

The Vets against the Vietnam War, the Wobblies (IWW), the Panthers, the Young Socialistist Alliance (Trotskyite), the RYM2 (Revolutionary Youth Movement faction of the Students for a Democratic Society), Weathermen (the other, more interesting side of the SDS), and hundreds of other splinter groups were taking a fair beating, though we had the numbers.  I was sort of in the middle of all that, writing for the alternative newspaper, the RAG, and trying to get an education dovetailed with sex, drugs and Rock and Roll with an occasional riot, march or rally thrown in for good measure.

That's when we invented the Yin Yang Conspiracy.  An ad hoc political party.  We ran a longhair named Jeff Jones for student body president, and we threw the bastards out, lock stock and fraternity pin.  Lordee we thought we'd done something fierce, beating the system that way.  Hot diggedy damn.

Anyway, it's in memory of that microscopic triumph among people who had in common only that they opposed the War, that I'm calling these numbers, The Yin Yang Conspiracy:  These numbers are going to win the Vietnam War the easy way.  Tomorrow night, 6 of them are going to hit on Mega Millions:

And once they've won it, maybe we can just skip the one going on right now and bring those boys home before too many more have to get all shot up and crippled up and completely forgotten by the patriots who are waving flags back home.

Jack,
It looks like we come from the same genetic background. I think you could be my twin.
Your Blog brought back all those memories.
Like I mentioned to you before, you're the kind of guy I'd like to be sitting next to at the bar. If you're ever in Chicago, let me know....I'll buy....they'll have to kick us out.
Good luck with your mega game numbers!
