    make me very nostalgic and sad, for a time in my childhood when the mass culture seemed to embrace the peacenik pinko values I was taught at home.

    There's nothing like that now, nothing.  No dramas with a left-wing slant.  It's all "24" and "Acts of Valor".

    I have to remember, though, that Obama got elected.  It's like a talisman.  Whenever politics overwhlems me, whenever it seems that current backlash is about to obliterate half a century of progress, I remind myself that it CAN'T be two steps back to every one step forward, because Obama got elected.  Proof of progress.
