|Year|| Event |
|1796|| George Washington's farewell address, in which he warned against public debt, large military developments, and permanent alliances with foreign powers was printed this date. [Such a worrywart!] |
|1893|| New Zealand takes the honor of being the first nation to grant women the right to vote. |
|1918|| An epidemic of influenza, picked up in Europe, begins this month and spreads through the U.S. killing 500,000 people before it ends in 1919. The casualties were greater than those inflicted by the war! |
|1994|| US Armed Forces invade Haiti to restore the dictator Aristide to the presidency and "democracy" to the people. Right. |
|1998|| Yet another Interesting Government Purchase (from the CBD), from the USAID:"SUPPORT FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH AND INSTITUTIONAL REFORM PROJECT (SEGIR)--GENERAL BUSINESS,, TRADE AND INVESTMENT", AMT $85,000,000 each TO Nathan-MSI Group, Barents Group LLC, Booz Allen & Hamilton, CARANA Corporation, Price Waterhouse Coopers, and Chemonics International, Incorporated. (many similar awards have been made recently by the USAID -- see the CBD) |
