How the Vietnam War Shaped Classic Rock–And How Classic Rock Shaped the War

There are a handful of popular songs that have become cliche and shorthand for filmmakers wishing to take us back to the trauma of the Vietnam War: Jimi Hendrix’s cover of Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” or Edwin Starr’s “War,” to name two. Yet at the same time, while classic rock lives forever, memories or lessons of Vietnam have not. Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” originally was a comment on the Sunset Strip Curfew (anti-war) riots, but now its meaning is open ended eno...

Whicker: Hard to argue that Tiger’s comeback isn’t the ultimate

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The Masters is not timeless. You have to complete it within the light of day. On Sunday it began right after sunrise, in order to beat an epochal storm that only grazed Augusta. That meant Tiger Woods and his circle could celebrate longer and maybe even catch Game of Thrones. Woods, again, had won his. The long aftermath also provided a chance to rank the great comebacks in sports. Since we compulsively rank quarterbacks, restaurants, Springsteen songs and gastrointestinal medicin...

Moon has been eager to regain momentum in talks with North Korea since Kim's second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, in Vietnam in February, failed due to conflicting demands by Pyongyang for sanctions relief and by Washington for sweeping North Korean measures to abandon its nuclear program. Kim said in a speech on Friday that he was willing to hold another summit with Trump if the United States changed its calculation and offered a "proper attitude and a methodology", setting a year-e...

An F-35 Will Never be Alone: Russia Seems to Warn America's Stealth Fighter
