Say Goodbye To August

Stan Freberg here. Say "goodbye" to August. My birthday was in August; the 7th, as a matter of fact. Yeah, I'm a Leo; but I'm afraid a few other things also happened in August. After this. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Shakespeare wrote, "Beware the Ides of March," but he should've said "August." For example, which of the following downers happened in August:

A:The Communists' attempted takeover of President Gorbachev;

B:The bombing of Hiroshima;

C:The death of Princess Diana;

D:Iraq's invasion of Kuwait;

E:All of the above.

That's right - it's "E: All of the above."

And how about that historic week starting with President Clinton giving a live TV confession, regards the Monica matter, and ending with his ordering up Cruise missles against terrorists? That was in August - that supposedly humdrum, slow news month. Oh, yeah?

Next August, maybe I'll be doing these commentaries from deep underground inside the Carlsbad Caverns!
