Nostalgia For Budding 'Old Coots'
Go ahead, kids....laugh at the eighties cheese.
Twenty-five years ago, me and my age-mates thought the sixties was the ne plus ultra of queerness!
In 2034, your children will most surely be laughing at your obtuse iPhones, your groovy windmills, your President, etc.
AND they'll have *video* of you to boot!
I'll never forget seeing Splash at the theater - I was ten.
I vividly remember that on the way out, we walked past all of the cool teenagers; they were lined up to see Footloose.
