In the capsule today…
We find U.S. Postal Service workers going on strike. 200,000 letter carriers participated in the walkout, and President Nixon even assigned military units to work at post offices in New York City.
We find a surprise announcement by Paul McCartney. The Beatles are breaking up!
And we find a song on the radio by Stephen Stills. Months prior, Stephen was feeling lonesome at a party in London as his girlfriend was back State-side. UK singer Doris Troy quipped "Love the one you're with, Sugar!" Stephen loved the expression and asked her if he could use it in a song. She said yes.
