Grab Bag Friday: The Good Old Days

This is a few weeks old, but I got a big kick out of John Oliver's bit on The Daily Show about "the good old days." I hope it makes you laugh, too!

And if I may, I'll preface with a quote from the President's State of the Union Address:

It’s tempting to look back on these moments and assume that our progress was inevitable – that America was always destined to succeed. But when the Union was turned back at Bull Run and the Allies first landed at Omaha Beach, victory was very much in doubt. When the market crashed on Black Tuesday and civil rights marchers were beaten on Bloody Sunday, the future was anything but certain. These were times that tested the courage of our convictions, and the strength of our union. And despite all our divisions and disagreements; our hesitations and our fears; America prevailed because we chose to move forward as one nation, and one people.
Again, we are tested. And again, we must answer history’s call.
