Remember when our worst problem was a loose zipper?

Even a partisan Dem such as me can appreciate the lost opportunities of the 1990s. Well, ‘ole Bill has released a book, and he was giving an interview on NPR this morning. I did not find myself waxing sentimental over the 1990s. I did not wonder if Bill and the gang would have done a better job under the circumstances of the last four years. What did strike me was how intelligent, well informed, and well spoken he sounded. Things sure have changed.

Are you old enough to remember the days when mediocrity was not a virtue?

(My sense of irony is tingling like a limb that has fallen asleep.)
