Monday, February 26, 2007. [Still playing catch-up, just a little.]
For the 50th (!!) episode of "It Was 20 Years Ago Today," we return to a subject we've visited before, and will again -- the Iran-Contra scandal. On this day, the Tower Commission submitted a report on its investigations into the scandal. It would be the first of many, which shared a common trait of often being difficult for the average person to follow.
George Santayana (1863-1952) was the person who said, "Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
Today's episode music is from "Cyndi 2nd Draft," by Jeff Shields. Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
