    Plus ša change

    This isn't primarily about language, but it's a timely reminder about people harking back to a (non-existent) Golden Age, 'before everything went to the dogs'. The headline could come from today's papers, but look at the date.

    Dear BobK:

    Have you noticed that the New Yorker has been running cartoons 'From Our Archives' (from the 30's-40's), mainly about the financial situation? They work as well, if not better (for the irony), than when they were first published. Indeed it all goes in circles!

    Regards,

    Petra
