G-L-O-R-I-A. . .Gloria!
by Charlie Finch

In 1972, when I was 19, I was the New York State Student Coordinator, for the general election, for George McGovern for President (against Nixon). It was a cool job, because I got to organize speaking tours by Daniel Ellsberg and Daniel Berrigan, who were still technically "underground," as well as being the co-organizer of McGovern’s final election rally at Trump Village in Brighton Beach (that would be Fred Trump, liberal father of Donald), while maintaining a full class schedule at Yale.
