Remember the romantic thrill of being young, white, Protestant, and conventional?
Remember when people were proud to be "normal" and "regular?"

Cartoons about suburbia in The New Yorker!
Happy housewives in happy kitchens! Hi Mom!
Great big cars with fins that came in colors like "coral" and "turquoise!"
TeeVee! The electronic babysitter blasting us all with cathode ray radiation for hours on end!
Glamorous sad bad misunderstood beautiful young men on motorcycles like Marlon Brando!
Physique magazines to keep homosexuals safely in the closet and off our children!
The House Un-American Activities Committee!
