It became obvious that Monday night 33 years ago, to those who hadn’t quite picked up on the implications of Reagan’s election, that we were in for a rocky ride, a dark period of reaction against the progress of the previous two decades. We’ve never emerged, “hope and change” notwithstanding. I incline to think that none of us who remember the event will live to see the end of the tunnel.
Then again, we’re now halfway toward the Beatles reunion so many people yearned for in 1970.
