1976After 39 days of “crackling…maudlin…and bewildering testimony, the most sensational trial of the television era” was over. In February 1974, Patty Hearst, 19, granddaughter of media mogul William Randolph Hearst, had been kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army. That April, she was caught on tape participating in a bank robbery. Her defense argued coercion and duress; the jury disagreed, finding her guilty on all counts. Her sentence of 35 years put to rest any notion that “her famous name and odd crime” could help her in court. In the end, President Jimmy Carter commuted her sentence after 22 months served.(VYTAS VALAITIS)1964As sexual attitudes softened, a “disquieting revolution” began to take shape on college campuses, Newsweek reported.

shut up and deal

@billasia2010FOR DONALD TRUMP, THE POLITICS OF TRADE always seemed straightforward.Ripping pretty much any other country with which the U.S. runs a trade deficit—and China, trade villain No. 1, in particular—was a way to win hearts and minds of voters throughout the industrial Midwest in 2016. When it turned out that those voters, in states such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, would unexpectedly give him the presidency, Trump’s instincts—his gut—were ratified. “I won,” he once told his friend Tom Barrack, a prominent investor and Trump campaign fundraiser, “because of trade.”What Trump didn’t understand that night, according to friends, associates and people who work for him today in his administration, was how complicated the issue of trade is.
