Pat Oliphant for September 23, 1983
Marine: ...Marines in Vietnam er-ah-Lebanon! Heh heh little Freudian slip there heh heh... Man 1: Mr. President! Watt has dropped the bomb again!! Man 2: Senator Glenn! McGovern has announced! Man 3: Yuri, one of our fighters just shot down an unarmed commercial airliner! Woman: Minister Gromyko! They've banned you from New York - you can't get to the U.N.! Man 4: President Marcos! The people are rioting, the whole place is burning! Man 5: Commodore, these awful Australians are gone, but our cup seems to be missing! Man 6: Yawn - What? Things aren't always what they seem - in that famous picture, Sec. of State Shultz rubs his eyes in fatigue as testifying Marine commandant makes a small faux pas.
