    Sandra, this gave me a chuckle too, since I was teaching the sixties last
    term to a group of senior university students whose average age, except
    for one, was less than half mine (and I'm a mere kid at 46--my wife a more
    "core" sixties veteran at 53). When I showed the film "Berkeley in the
    Sixties" I realized none of them had even been born by the time the decade
    had ended. Now that's a scary thought! (grin)

    But my favorite story was of a conversation my wife overheard at her
    university in Portland one day last term, when a group of young undergrads
    were talking about rock music. One mentioned Paul McCartney and another
    said to her, "Oh yeah, wasn't he in some band even *before* Wings?"
