CONTAINING LINKS TO 1280 STORIES FROM THE NETWORKS' NIGHTLY NEWSCASTS
     COMMENTS: All We Are Saying

For its closer, CBS had Mark Phillips bring us the tale of Gail Renard, a 16-year-old cub reporter on her high school newspaper in Montreal back in 1969. The big story in Quebec back then was an anti-war Bed-In staged at a local hotel. Renard got the scoop as Yoko Ono invited her into the bedroom to cover her marathon musical flower-power lie-down with John Lennon. The assembled throng was supposed to join John in a singalong of his latest ditty but no one could remember the words so Lennon jotted them down for Renard and she copied them onto cue cards. "These things are going to be worth something one day," she recalled him telling her as he let her keep his scrawl. That "one day" is now and Renard is selling the original manuscript of Give Peace a Chance at a Christie's auction. Asking price 200,000.
