    Things still remain the same.

    By chance, I ran across The Tonight show from February 29th, 1972. Out of curiosity, I Googled the date and found out it was a Tuesday. I also got a link to the NBC Nightly News of that day.

    The top stories of the newscast ......... were the same issues we're dealing with today.

    Congress was voting on school busing. Racial issues were top of the news. Same as today.

    Nixon was home from China, talking about Taiwan . China in the news today, constantly.

    There was a report on the Israeli / Palestine issue. Israel had invaded the Golan Heights chasing Palestinian terrorists. Today, is rockets being fired into Israel.

    The Equal Rights Amendment was defeated by the Senate, a minor setback for womens rights.

    Sen Sam Irvin was accusing the military of spying on Senators and Congresmen. Which the NSA , CIA, and whoever else is still doing today.
