A moment of zen
While joking with Jeff Wells today about pop-culture allusions and readership demographics, some troubling thoughts popped into my head. This fall, the typical incoming college freshman will have no living memory of a time when M*A*S*H was a first-run, prime-time series -- and Law & Order wasn't. And Back to the Future, Top Gun and The Breakfast Club are movies his/her parents might have seen in theaters while they were dating... back in high school. Yikes.
