Who controls the past, controls the future ...

I'm sort of amazed when I talk to people younger than I am about Ronald Reagan and they profess to have no real opinion about him because they were too young when he was president to really know what was going on. I'm too polite to ask how it happened that they never learned to read. I mean, I was very young when Nixon was president, but I still have opinions about things he did . I wasn't even born when Lyndon Johnson became president, but I can discuss his doings. Granted, I have few people with which to discuss these things because I'm surrounded by people who don't even know they happened. Who needs a memory hole when no one cares to remember?
