Perhaps readers who are my age or older recall Khrushchev banging his shoe on a desk at the U.N. in 1960.
Now, I'm wondering if I remember the incident correctly.
Meesha put some pictures from that time on his blog, and that made me remember the shoe incident. Surely I could find a picture of this on the vast Internet. Right?
I could not. But there's always Youtube. Maybe I'd find an old news clip there. I'm positive I remember watching the news and seeing Khrushchev bang his shoe.
Meesha included a picture of Nakita with the fabled shoe in hand, in answer to a comment I made. But did he bang the shoe, or merely wave it?
Perhaps my memory isn't so sharp after all. I could have sworn I saw him bang that shoe on his desk on the black-and-white TV news.
