As for February 14, 1987, the Post (35 cents) was reporting on a visit here the night before from Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush. The Democratic Party, The soon to be Bush 41 said, was a party of "malaise and despair." The Post's Channel One TV guide was promoting Amerika, the mini-series about the US being under Soviet control a decade later (eg in 1997). Well, that didn't happen. I saw the Chernobyl miniseries on HBO last year, BTW (how come Gorbachev was speaking English?).
Anyway, that night UC men's basketball was hosting Tennessee State at what used to be Riverfront Coliseum. The cats who won...Tennessee State. To quote Chris Berman, "I remember. I was there."
