Today / November 4

by PG

Today in History (1979) - Iranian radicals, mostly students, invade the U.S. embassy in Tehran and take 90 hostages, 63 of whom are American. The next year, Reagan defeats Carter by a wide margin in the presidential election. Fifteen years after that, Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin is mortally wounded by a right-wing Israeli assassin, after attending a peace rally in Tel Aviv's Kings Square. And happy birthday to First Lady Laura Bush.
