In the time capsule today…
We find the first “Garfield” comic strip published by Jim Davis. Garfield earns $1 billion per year in merchandising alone, and started with Jim’s idea to, "come up with a good, marketable character."
We find the opening of the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. It became the first legal casino in the United States outside of Nevada.
And we find a song on the radio by Eddie Money. Eddie wrote the song “Two Tickets To Paradise” about his girlfriend, who he wanted to whisk away, but who’s mother wanted her to dump him and marry a doctor or a lawyer instead.
