December 15, 1995 was a Friday and probably by the end of it there was a big sigh of relief. In Washington there was that little matter of Whitewater and yes, voting on an emergency spending bill before the government went broke . . .again. AIDS patient and activist Jeff Getty receives the first ever bone cell transplant from a Baboon, making it the first procedure of its kind. Bosnia was gearing up for a transition to peace, with Washington still haggling over what our troops will be doing over there. Boris Yeltsin, recovering from Heart Attack #2, goes on Russian Radio and Television to persuade the Russian people the Great Leap Back to the Soviet Union days isn't such a good idea. The OJ Simpson saga continued with reports of breakups and phone calls on the night of the murders during the latest deposition for the Civil trial.
And since all this came via the CBS World News Roundup morning edition - the day hadn't actually started yet.
