On the Day I was Born...

Thanks to a link on a friend's Facebook page, I found myself looking up a copy of The Straits Times on the day I was born, and this is what happened:

Topless women were arrested in New York:

A recession was also happening:

The World Cup was happening in Mexico, amongst other things:

Man, was I born on a slow news day.

What is crazy is I can find out what happened on the days my parents were born, almost sixty years ago - and you can look up papers all the way back to 1845! Isn't it awesome? Tell me what happened when you were born!
