No. 18: Tyus Edney’s mad dash

West Regional second round, March 19, 1995 — Tyus Edney did Ainge one better. Missouri led the tournament’s top seed 74-73 with 4.8 seconds remaining. The Tigers didn’t double-team Edney on the in-bounds, which allowed the UCLA point guard to catch the ball at full speed. He zipped down the court and swooped in for a score as time expired, saving the Bruins, who would go onto win their 11th national title.___________________________________________

Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed film goddess whose sultry screen life was often upstaged by her stormy personal life, died today at age 79.
My wife Jill and I love the movie “Giant” which is her finest movie in my opinion. I like the clip here where James Dean makes a move on Elizabeth Taylor and she tells him she will report it to her husband (Rock Hudson).

My sons Wilson and Hunter spent all day with our friend Sherwood Haisty Jr. trying to get into Yosemite National Park yesterday and they will try again today. However, there has been a landslide and several of the entrances have been closed. We will see if they are successful today. Read more about the landslide at my last posting.

1980 Presidential debate Reagan v Carter

 MR. SMITH

Governor Reagan, you have a minute for rebuttal.

GOVERNOR REAGAN

Yes. The President talks of Government programs, and they have their place. But as Governor, when I was at that end of the line and receiving some of these grants for Government programs, I saw that so many of them were dead-end. They were public employment for these people who really want to get out into the private job market, where there are jobs with a future.

Now, the President spoke a moment ago about — that I was against the minimum wage. I wish he could have been with me when I sat with a group of teenagers who were black and who were telling me about their unemployment problems, and that it was the minimum wage that had done away with the jobs that they once could get. And indeed, every time it has increased you will find there is an increase in minority unemployment among young people. And therefore, I have been in favor of a separate minimum for them.

With regard to the great progress that has been made with this Government spending, the rate of black unemployment in Detroit, Michigan, is 56 percent.
