No, she had just moved to a new apartment and the manager had promised her a newer stove than the old one that was there. When she moved in she found that it was the same old stove and she got supremely pissed off. So what did she do? She plugged in her computer among all her packing crates and had a 9.2 Richter mental meltdown on FC live, took off her designer blouse and chopped it up with her scissors. Then she sat there glaring with insane rage into her webcam wearing a skirt and bra...
It wasn't Carter's fault; the US was bankrupted by Vietnam and the Cold war by the time Carter came in. He actually was trying to get a hold over the debt and straighten out the miltary in a murky invisible struggle. Reagan was more charming etc but what an ass..."morning in America" my ass. It was in deep trouble but the right policies could have cured a lot of ills at that point. Amnesty for illegals and running up the debt to pull WWII battleships out of mothballs was lunacy.
There were jobs for men. They were grimy tough jobs but guys did them. I regret not being older. I'm not the slightest bit envious of young guys now. I'm envious of old John down the hall who's 93. Damn he got to live in good times..
I remember going to the Accademia in Florence to see Michelangelo's David. Immensely impressive in a way that no photograph can capture but the indoor room had open grates from Florence's ancient sewers in it and the smell of sewage cooking in the heat was rising up into the room. it was odd to gaze upon one of hte greatest accomplishments of humanity while wreathed in the stench of human shit.

Paul shows the scum from the lowest gutters, seeping up to the highest levels of society..
Are you kidding...1960 to 1968 teenagers RULED THE WORLD. The baby boomers had arrived, they had jobs even if they were in school and they had money to blow. Stuff was cheap relatively speakign and parents were eager to spoil their kids.
You wouldn't believe how well dressed everyone was at school. The kids were their parent's pets and they dressed them to the nines particularly the girls> It was an erotic festival the likes of which I've never seen again.
The kids now go to school dressed like DPs... Sucks..
