My favorite air to breathe is fall air on a college campus. Believe it or not, fall and the arrival of students, new and returning, is here! Football players, resident assistants, sorority recruitment leaders, and band members are likely on your campus right now. Others will quickly follow! Wooo Hooo!
Most freshmen arriving on your campus in a few weeks were born in 1992. Other happenings in 1992 were:
- A League of Their Own, Sister Act, and A Few Good Men were popular movies.
- The Pelican Brief by John Grisham, Every Living Thing by James Harriot, and The Way Things Ought to Be by Rush Limbaugh were best-selling books.
- “Murphy Brown,” “Home Improvement,” and “Cheers” were weekly television hits.
- Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy” and Kris Cross’ “Jump” were at the top of the musical charts.
- University of Alabama football record was 13-0-0.
- Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series: 4-2 against the Atlanta Braves.
- The first black female astronaut, Dr. Mae C. Jemison, spent more than a week orbiting Earth.
- Johnny Carson left “The Tonight Show.” I still miss him.
- Quebec voted to remain a part of Canada.
- The L.A. Riots followed the recorded beating of Rodney King.
- Minnesota’s Mall of America, the largest shopping mall in the United States, was constructed.
