Those Were the Days


This was, for many, the year that music died, with the deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.   It was also a changing of the attitude toward men and women.  United Airlines offered a “men only” flight that included free cigars and steak dinners.  A lawsuit by feminists ended it.  In addition, McSorley’s Old Ale House in NYC, a “men only” establishment for a hundred years was forced to allow women in the joint.  Apollo 13 set an out of this world altitude record for a manned spacecraft, traveling over 248,000 miles from earth (some of it not planned).  Song of the Year was Simon & Garfunkle’s Bridge Over Trouble Water.



Saying of the Week
