July 19, 2000 – News for this day in 2000 started off with the goings-on at Camp David. The Summit was heading down to the wire and not much was appearing to be accomplished. The 2000 Camp David Summit was a summit meeting at Camp David between United States president Bill Clinton, Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat. The summit took place between 11 and 25 July 2000 and was an effort to end the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Reports of the outcome of the summit have been described as illustrating the Rashomon effect, in which the multiple witnesses gave contradictory and self-serving interpretations. As of today, things weren’t going well, but at least they were going. And that was a hopeful sign.
In other news – Singer Barbara Streisand announced she would be quitting all live performances after her schedule of farewell concerts ends in late September. Streisand turned 57, and she last performed live in Las Vegas on New Years Eve.

Boyscouts Officials said they were not expecting everyone to accept their values but they do want their beliefs respected and those beliefs were the Boyscouts did not extend membership to avowed homosexuals. In retaliation, United Way of Southeast New England cut off funding for the Boyscouts.
And that’s just a little of what went on, this July 19, 2000 from the CBS World News Roundup; Late Edition.
