Party Like It's 5770

Sundown today begins Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, which my Semitic Sources tell me brings on the year 5770. That means for Jews, it's the '70s all over again! I need to warn them about polyester, disco, and inflation!

Of course, that decade did have some good things, like the introduction of Bruce Springsteen and the great sitcom "All in the Fambly". But it's also the decade that AIDS surfaced, and high waisted pants came into vogue. And waiting on gas lines? What sort of crap is that?

To be fair, our current decade hasn't been a picnic either--terrorist attacks, grinding down our armed forces in Iraq for some reason, financial collapse, and the band Nickelback--so in about forty years I'll warn my Jewish friends about that too.

Happy New Year!
