Hans Remembers- Friday November 27, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • Bolivian artist Benjamin Mendoza attempted to assassinate Pope Paul VI during a visit to Manila. South Korean Archbishop Stephen Kim Sou-hwan was cut in the hand while intervening to protect the Pontiff from Mendoza who rushed through the crowd of well wishers after the papal entourage had descended from their airplane at the Manila Airport. A month later it would be revealed that the Pope had been stabbed twice in the neck but that the blade had been partially blocked by the cape the Pope was wearing.
  • George Harrison’s landmark album- All Things Must Pass was released- it was Harrison’s third solo album but his first after the break-up of The Beatles earlier in the year. The album and it’s first hit single “My Sweet Lord” would both go to #1.
  • In the National League Rookie of the Year voting the Montreal Expos Carl Morton who won 18 and lost 11 on the year beat Bernie Carbo of the Cincinnati Reds out for the award.
