3 reporting tonight from franklin, tennessee... oline amanpour

[july 17, 1996, 10:37 p.m.]


translation: "There was a Boeing 747 that crashed this evening off of Long Island. It's terrible. They're not sure if it's terrorism or a mechanical problem. There were 212 passengers and 17 crew. The wreckage is in the Atlantic Ocean. Some bodies were recovered. The wreckage is still on fire. Because it happened so late, rescue efforts have been futile. I played badminton by myself for half an hour. It's good exercise and fun. I'm so incredibly tired."

the plight of an only child. i can play an entire game of any sport entirely by myself. and, due to an unwavering sense of fairness, still manage to lose.
