On This Date: Lewinsky!
In today’s heated, war-fueled political climate, it’s sometimes nice to look back on a time when our biggest problem was a married man’s bodily fluids on a blue dress.
Today in 1999, Monica Lewinsky was subpeonaed for private videotapes to be used in President Clinton’s impeachment trials.
What a time, eh? It was the dawn of celebrity obsession (remember Gwyneth Palthrow?) and a time before the axis of evil, the destruction of the World Trade Center, the invasion of Iraq and all of the controversy surrounding Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
With that in mind, it seems wise to hope our future problems can be as simple as some Arkansauce on a blue dress.
