Carson Time Capsule... Thursday, September 17th.


In the capsule today…

We find a listing and badly damaged USS Stark in the Persian Gulf after an Iraqi missile attack. Thirty-seven Navy sailors died.

We find a buddy-cop action film in theaters. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover star in “Lethal Weapon.”

And we find a song on the radio by Michael Jackson. The track is one of two songs on the Bad album that Michael did not write. Quincy Jones invited songwriters to submit songs that would spread some "sunshine on the world." "Man in the Mirror" was selected, and the track went to number one.

What is the year? (answer below).
