(June 17, 1995 - while we were preoccupied with gloves - the world took a turn for the strange)


June 17, 1995 - Fifteen years ago today. Chechnya had heated up with a hostage situation having a violent twist. Bosnia had spun out of control and the OJ Simpson trial was grinding into oblivion. For proof the world was just as unhinged then as now, here is a CBS World News Roundup broadcast from June 17, 1995, lest you get all dewy-eyed about "the old days".

Can you help us out?
