Today marks the start of the infamous 1969-70 Chicago Seven Trial of activists charged with plotting to incite riots at the 1968 Chicago DNC. That DNC attracted Vietnam War protesters and civil rights activists. They were faced and attacked by Mayor Richard Daley’s brutal police force.

In this week’s “Dancing With the Stars,” the most vivid moment on “Boys’ Night” was when the camera showed the faces of the women competitors after model Albert Reed completed a cha-cha-cha. With so many pelvic gyrations, he could easily get a gig as a Chippendale stripper. The women were absolutely agog! The article includes photographs and video.

Wofford College, the smallest school in Division I football, beat Division I-AA’s top-ranked Appalachian State by a score of 42-31.

Photographs and videos are included.

Today marks the anniversary of the start of the infamous 1969 to 1970 Chicago Seven Trial of political activists who were charged with conspiracy to cross state lines in order to individually incite riots at the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The seven prominent radical activists, Jerry Rubin, Lee Weiner, David Dellinger, Rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, John Froines, and Abbie Hoffman, displayed outrageous and distracting behavior all through the trial. All but Froines and Weiner were convicted, but none served any jail time, since they all were later acquitted. The 1968 Democratic National Convention attracted protesters against the Vietnam War, as well as other political and civil rights activists. They were confronted by Mayor Richard Daley’s brutal police force, as shown in the video below.
