Time marches on. Guess which well-known personage made the following exclamation on this date in 1998: “I want to say one thing to the American people -- I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”? In addition, let's have a moment of silence for General "Chinese" Gordon who lost his life to the Mahdi in Khartoum on this date in 1885. The Mahdi cut off his head and posted it on a spike in front of the city. Some things never change.
