    of 1984, we were brought up in it. But it seemed like after the date passed it was quickly dropped, and 2001 came so quickly that a whole generation missed it. I heard a right-wing religious teenager expounding to other teens on how he was gonna get his hands on some terrorists and torture 'em to pieces, etc.  I asked him if he'd ever heard of Room 101. Ended up giving him a copy of 1984. He wasn't going to accept it from me, but he saw the cover and quickly slipped it inside his Bible case when he heard his father coming.

    We are all pupils in the eyes of God.
