In 1968 the Columbia University radio station broadcast live reports from the building occupations then in progress. At one point I heard the student reporter, breathless wth excitement, interpret a chant as "Let's throw stones! Let's throw stones!" I remember thinking this was odd--stones are scarce in the corridors of the Math building, and if you're going to throw stones, you throw them, you don't chant about your intention. And indeed it emerged that the chant was "Kirk [the University President] must go!"

Great article, Nancy. Also, I gotta say, the word-cloud list of tags for your posts on Strong Language is hysterical!
