Ten Years Ago December 10th Sounded A Lot Like This


(On December 10, 1999 - this guy was big news)

December 10, 1999 - another one of those days where seemingly nothing earth shattering happened. Bill Bradley was temporarily sidelined from his Presidential bid owing to a recurring heart problem.

Bill Whitney (CBS News): “Presidential hopeful Bill Bradley has cancelled campaign appearances until Sunday. Spokeswoman Anita Dunn says he suffered a recurrence of a heart irregularity

Anita Dunn: “Senator Bradley in 1996 was diagnosed as having Atrial Fibrillation which is an irregular heartbeat. It’s a condition that’s shared with over 2 million Americans and that his doctor really describes as an inconvenience rather than a problem.”

Chinese spy charges were flying around, Rick Danko of The Band died and a woman claiming to be 114 years old was celebrating a birthday.

Another December 10th, exactly ten years ago.
