I was just scanning down the page looking for new comments, when I came across the "Sober Redneck" post, which references Jimmy Carter.
That's when it struck me: The Carter presidency is as far in the past now as the FDR years were when Carter was in office. Yikes.
To put it another way, Pretty Hate Machine is as old now as Led Zeppelin's first album was when I was in high school.
I think I need a lie-down.
