We’ve got the energy crisis, we’ve got the foreign quagmire, we’ve got the wacky economy. Wait a minute — It’s the Seventies all over again! I did the Seventies already! Hey! No flashbacks!
Admittedly, people are getting the details wrong. Hybrid cars that combine fuel economy and conspicuous consumption? Gross! A fad for piercings that leaves young people with more holes in them than Bonnie and Clyde? Double gross! What are people smoking?
Look, if we’re going to do the Seventies again, let’s do it right. Attention, young people! Ditch the black clothing and wear pastels! Attention, politicians! Let’s see more resignations! Attention, lunatic fringe! More conspiracy theories! (It was JFK himself on the grassy knoll!)
