Some personal history of little consequence: I was about to begin first grade in August of 1965 — I'm old! — and remember the aerial footage of people looting furniture and appliance stores. The memories are in black-and-white, same as the footage.

My parents were at a party in Glendale the weekend of the riots, and a rumor was circulating that an "army of blacks" was marching in the direction of the northern suburbs. Crazy times.

Loved the Pynchon. Still depressingly relevant . . .
