Kurt Cobain and 15 Years

Not enough coverage of Kurt Cobain's death, imho. A Seattle Times piece here. A New York Daily News piece here. For a band that brought music out of the '80s and soothed the pain of the Bush I trainwreck, there needs to be more. My students were three when this happened. Where is their Cobain? What discourse do I give them? There is a crack in the world and I don't know how we fix it.

This, rather than my birthdays, continues to be how I measure how old I am. Fifteen years is a long time. It's almost an incomprehensibly different world, and here I am.

In my time, it was John Lennon's assassination.
