"Next week on ABCís World News Tonight, a series of reports about our environment which will tell you precisely what the new Congress has in mind: the most frontal assault on the environment in 25 years. Is this what the country wants? On ABCís World News Tonight next week."

"Some thoughts on those angry voters.

-- Today co-host Bryant Gumbel, April 25, 1995.
