I'm the Same Age As...
In the 20thC, 1968 is often thought of as the year of the greatest upheaval.Violent events incl. the assassinations of MLK and RFK shook the US and just after the summer of love, the overall North American mood is said to have shifted from confidence to dismay in the face of social inequity & Vietnam. But what do I know, I was just a baby, as were:
- •The Beatles' White Album
- •Will Smith
- •Owen Wilson
- •Heart and bone marrow transplants
- •2001: A Space Odyssey, Night of the Living Dead, Planet of the Apes and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Wow. I am old.
- •This VW Karmann-Ghia.Yes there were lots of cool cars in the 60s but I'd like this one. And a scarf in my hair and big sunglasses.
- •Intel. My kids haven't known a time before computers. I guess technically neither have I.
