Thanks. I'll just add that, having lived my childhood and teens in the 80s that I really thought nuclear annihilation under Ronald Reagan was a great possibility. How could you not with massive Defense budget (no government shrinking there) and Star Wars campagin?
You also had movies like "The Day After", "Red Dawn" and the Mad Max series to give you warm thoughts of nuclear winter.
RR scared me and never, once, did I think of the 80s as a time of "optimism".
YS, what was it like living behind the Iron Curtain in the 80s?
BARBIEis coming for your towel, too.
