West Side Story update, Simon & Garfunkel update, etc

West Side Story: that was then, this is now. Simon and Garfunkel: that was then, this is now: “it took me four days to hitchhike from Panama.” Ha Ha.

We live in the oddest of times, when sixty years or so separate a past shared among Americans of 15 generations or so has become invisible to the young. And these poor clowns today, with their amazing tech and lifespans double those of their great-grandparents, think those times mean nearly nothing, and permit them to think that somehow or other they are victims. Hey, how about the 15th of Nisan? Or how about Easter? Wise up, kids; you gotta be smarter than NPR.
