President Clinton returns to Wilkes-Barre

The Beacon: Former President Bill Clinton will visit Wilkes University on Saturday, April 19 at 9:45 A.M. The presidential visit will take place at Arnaud C. Marts Center, and admission will be on a first come first serve basis. Clinton will be the second president to visit Wilkes in its 74-year history.... The first was Richard Nixon who spoke at Wilkes on September 9, 1972 regarding federal aid to Wilkes after the Agnes flood.

Keep the cameras rolling. These days he sounds more bitter even though the dollars roll in by the truckload.

This seems to be the year of legacy destruction. Between Clinton, Greenspan, and Jack Welch, I am beginning to realize I spent too much of my formative years drinking at The Woods, Tink's, and Market Street Square to realize maybe the good old days of the late 90's weren't so good after all.
