Another Reason January 22 is Significant

This is the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision, legalizing abortion nationwide.  However, for me, January 22 is significant for another reason.  On the same day as the decision, Lyndon Johnson died in Texas.  The Court's ruling on abortion dominated the news for the first part of the half hour, and then the focus shifted abruptly.

Here is an excerpt from The CBS Evening News that night.
