The Year Was 1988…

It's hard to remember.

Here are a few things that happened in annum nineteen hundred and ninety-eight:

  • Hulk Hogan lost the WWF title to Andre the Giant
  • Florence Griffith Joyner set a world record in the 200 meter dash
  • Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” hit the top 10
  • Mr. T launched his own television show
  • Eddie Murphy’s “Coming to America” grossed $128 million
  • The Dodgers won the World Series
  • A gallon of gas cost 98 cents

And Don Bankhead began his 22-year career on the Fullerton City Council.

Twenty-two years is more than enough. It’s time to give mayor Bankhead a break.
