In The News

Press conference – President Clinton shrugs off poorer poll numbers and defends himself over charges of indecisiveness and drift. “I’m fighting to change things. The American people know one thing:  that I’m on their side.”

In San Diego, President Clinton tells a TV audience that he will deliver on his campaign promise of a middle-class tax cut within his four tear term, but he first needs to get the federal budget back in balance.

President Clinton is in a little hot water. He received a haircut by a high-priced celebrity stylist at Los Angeles International Airport, and backed-up air traffic. A spokesman for the FAA said that Air Force One’s late departure led to a 56-minute closing of two LAX runways, but the White House denies any delays were encountered. Some airlines say the opposite is true – that one was delayed by 25 minutes.

In Fresno (CA) – two men toting semiautomatic weapons walk into a nightclub and restaurant and open fire, killing seven and wounding two more.
