Maybe Just Me

Alright, this struck me as really funny, but maybe it's just me. From a Wikipedia article about obert Conquest's book The Great Terror (on extent of Stalin's "Great Purge"):

The timing of the publication of The Great Terror, in the middle of the Vietnam War and the great upsurge of leftist sentiment in Western universities and intellectual circles (see The Sixties), guaranteed that it would receive a hostile reception.

"A great upsurge of leftist sentiment (see "The Sixties")." Classic. Have I mentioned recently how dopey the 60s were?
