Background information: "Eugene Joseph McCarthy -- U.S. senator whose entry into the 1968 race for the Democratic presidential nomination ultimately led President Lyndon B. Johnson to drop his bid for reelection ... Although in 1964 he had supported the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution (which gave the president broad powers to wage the Vietnam War), by 1967 McCarthy had become an outspoken critic of the war."

Seattle: University of Washington Press. p. 81) Background information: In 1967, Seattle police invoked an antiquated ordinance banning arc lamps as a way to deny permits for light shows.
