(the never-ending saga of the Middle East - going back as far as the memory can see)

Another warmup of the Wayback Machine - this time to March 14, 1978. A typical average day - nothing special - nothing earth shattering. The hostage drama in Holland just came to a close, an hour before this broadcast. The Middle-East was doing what it seems to endlessly do. Buenos Aires was the site of prison riots The Senate was debating the Panama Canal Neutrality Treaty. The latest International scandal, Koreagate was running through the halls of Congress (the players making a comeback in 2005 under the heading "Food For Oil"). The Dollar was nosediving against the Yen - and Pope Paul had the flu.

Just another day - we all got through it. The earth didn't go off its axis. People died, people went insane and people got born.

And so it goes . . . .
