In the capsule today…
We find an X-Rated film in theaters. It went on to win an Academy Award for Best Picture, the only X-rated film to do so. Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman star, in "Midnight Cowboy."
We find Dave Thomas opening the first Wendy's restaurant in Columbus, Ohio. He served square patties with the corners hanging outside the bun so customers could see the quality of the meat!
And we find a song on the radio by Sly & Family Stone. On the surface, the song is about a fun summer… however, the song was actually written about the summer race riots.
What is the year? (answer below).
The year... 1969!
