From RollingStone.com News:

"PATTI SMITH covered NEIL YOUNG's 1970s protest song 'Ohio' Tuesday night during a performance at Brooklyn, New York's Warsaw. Smith played the song to mark the anniversary of the May 4, 1970 massacre at Kent State University, when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War, and she likened it to the climate of fear in America today. As a backdrop, Smith used the iconic image of a woman screaming over the body of slain student Jeffrey Miller."

Smith likened the tragedy to the climate of fear in America today.
