Daylight Video

Since I don’t know whether tomorrow is going to bring multiple disasters, surprising relief, or a combo platter of wonder and woe, I’m offering two videos today:

First up, Barry McGuire performing “Eve of Destruction” on TV’s “Hullabaloo” in 1965 (introduced by Jerry Lewis, no less).

Then on the positive side there’s Johnny Nash signing “I Can See Clearly Now” from another vintage TV show, “Midnight Special,” in 1973.

The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
