Here's nostalgia for you: I miss 1978-88... because it was childhood.
Reagan era cold war thinking & no interweb was so much easier.
Things made more "sense".
I can't imagine my grandmother being nostalgic for starvation, world war 1, or the spanish influenze epidemic that took her mom early, leading her to help rear her 10 or 12 siblings.
Phyew. where the hell am i going this morning...?
