On the 23rd, a ‘police riot’ broke out to ‘protect’ the President from peaceful protestors – the police were swinging hard. Men, women, journalists – for gosh sake, there were even women there with their babies – but just by being there, they were all fair game.
So we issued a Special Edition. It was of the moment – with reports ‘live’ from the scene of the crime. We followed that up with an Issue on our regular weekly print day, with re-prints and new articles that also included the reports of the people we had spoken with directly. And go ahead, read the Letters to the Editor… first-hand accounts, in words actually written by those it happened to.
And there, on the Front Page, is, also, a little bit about some writing by the ACLU; their suit against Century City for letting it happen. (In those days, $50,000 was a lot more than chicken feed.) Also, the Front Page alerts you to look for more on the Watts Riot. We reported on that, too, and also right from the scene… now you’ll certainly have even more eye-witness news, also not ‘filtered’ by the mainstream media. (If you want to see more, know more… just head over to the ‘Archive Request’ box.)
Finally, perhaps not expecting to still be in the news all these years later – and, this time, with one of the good deeds for which he was known back then – is Mr. Bill Cosby. Apparently, he was in LA again, a break from traveling the world with Kelly Robinson as a (shusssh) secret agent man. Hey, hey, hey… it’s just $2 bucks for that Rolls Royce.
Now, JUST FOR FUN, go find our ‘secret’ where everything you thought you forgot is just too cool to really forget. WooHoo… it’s… FLASHBACK FRIDAY!!
