STATE OF THE UNION RECAPS…AND AN EARWORM
Political Science liaison librarian Merrill Stein has provided the following links for recaps of last night’s State of the Union address: State Department, Washington Post & Christian Science Monitor.
And, since this has been stuck in our head all day…we’ll gladly share our earworm. State of the Union, a classic by Chicago and the late, great Terry Kath was recorded live in Tokyo, Japan on June 8, 1972.
