Ah yes, the glory years of Reaganomics, when we still had astronauts in space and the USSR scared the bejeebers out of everyone by testing a nuclear bomb. This was the year when people said "as if!" or "awesome", Risky Business was the hit at the box office, and if your hair wasn't permed, colored, and sticking straight up you were considered "square".
So to everyone that's headed back to school, remember to smile even when you don't want to, be the example, and don't get stressed because in all likelihood ten years from now whatever's causing the turmoil isn't going to matter.
So here's a little blast from my past. Let's hope when you look back you won't shake your head and mutter "I can't believe we actually looked like that". :-)
