Events of November 18 in THE REAGAN YEARS:

1981:  Reagan reminisces about a time when he sliced his thumb open while carving a turkey, and didn't notice till he saw the blood. He repeats the same story a year later.
1986:  A poll shows that only about one person in five believes Reagan's explanation that he did not swap military equipment for hostages.
1986:  Larry Speakes tells reporters, "We can guess 99 out of 100 times the questions that you guys pose." Sam Donaldson responds, "Yeah, but you can never guess what he's gonna answer."
1987:  The Congressional Iran-Contra committee releases its final report. It euphemistically charges that Ed Meese "departed from standard investi- gative techniques" when he investigated the scandal in its early stages, and chides Reagan not for any specific wrongdoing but merely for being officially responsible for what was done under him. Senator Orrin Hatch and others release a minority finding calling the report a "witch hunt" and the findings "hysterical."
1988:  Marilyn Quayle gives up her effort to take over her husband's senate seat following his election as Vice President, due to lack of support from anyone but herself.
