38 years ago

Walt Disney World opened in Orlando
Kissinger began secret peace talks with Hanoi
The top movies were 'Patton', 'Love Story' and 'Hello Dolly'
The Senate voted to repeal the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution
Apollo 13 said, 'Houston, we have a problem.'
A loaf of bread cost $0.24
Four protesting students were killed by the National Guard at Kent State
The population of the Unites States of America was 204.9 million
OSHA was established
A new home cost an average of $23,400
A first class stamp cost only $0.06

and on this particular day, a 5lb 9oz baby boy was born to a young couple in Panquitch, Utah.

They've regretted it almost every day since.
