In the time capsule today…
We find a listing and badly damaged USS Stark in the Persian Gulf. Thirty-seven Navy sailors died in the Iraqi missile attack.
We find a buddy-cop action film in theaters. Made for $15 million, the movie grossed $120 million at the box office. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover star in “Lethal Weapon.”
And we find a song on the radio by Michael Jackson. “Man In The Mirror” is one of two songs on the "Bad" album that Michael didn't write. Quincy Jones invited songwriters to submit songs that would spread some "sunshine on the world." “Man In The Mirror” was selected, and it went to number one on the charts.
