On this day 21 years ago, President Bush (Sr.) visited Colombia amidst one of the most massive displays of security in recent memory. Well . . .the subject was drugs. Meanwhile back in the States - the drug trial of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry was underway with promises of its fair share of revelations and surprises. In South Africa, Jesse Jackson visited with Nelson Mandela in Soweto to discuss the new South Africa, while the rest of the country was wondering what the ANC was planning on doing. And in Tajikistan, ethnic rioting was continuing with bombings of newspaper offices and a rising death toll all reported on the CBS World News Roundup for February 15, 1990.
A typical day. And there was probably paradise to be had somewhere in all of it.
And today . . . . .?
