Deja vu all over again

I was walking across the UNF campus after having had lunch at the Boathouse, the eatery upstairs in the Student Union, when I spied a banner hanging from the second-floor walkway of the Brooks Health Sciences building.  The banner, in very large black letters, said, "STOP THE WAR."  I nearly stumbled, because suddenly I had the feeling that I had been transported back forty-seven years (oy!  It has been that long!) to my time at Florida State University, the first time I went to college.  That time, of course, the war we wanted stopped was in Vietnam.  But it certainly did feel like deja vu all over again.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.
