The June 29, 1989 issue of The Washington Times newspaper seen below was gathered up and collected from news stands and newspaper vendors in Washington D.C. within an hour of the paper hitting the street. I suspect that the White House, working through the Secret Service, played a leading roll in arranging to have these newspapers recalled. While many web sites have posted a scan of the front page headline seen below, I couldn’t find a typed out text of the entire story, so I decided to type out the text myself so more people can read the story. I also included an enlargement of both the front page story and the continuation of the article inside the paper on page A7 for those who want to read the original text as it appeared in the newspaper.
