An Anniversary

Reagan was president, the "Just Say 'No'" campaign was fresh and new, "L.A. Law" premiered, Tutu was named an archbishop, Metalica's bassist was run over and killed by his own tour bus, the Public Health Service named this week "Infection Control Week", the Cleveland Indians shut out the Twins, Ivan Lendl was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, some new guy named Michael Jordan was drawing attention in the NBA, and "Platoon" was playing at the local theater.

And I got ordained a priest on this day, the transferred Feast of the Holy Cross [transferred to Monday because Holy Cross Day fell on a Sunday that year, and Sundays are always feast days dedicated to our Lord].
