Nostalgia has the problem of letting us choose the slant we look at history with.  I think Americans had a stronger national spirit even just a few years ago.  Maybe we can get that back with more can-do and less derisive anger.  I’m looking at these as a kind of Valentine for that nation.

As we regain that spirit - let’s use this time of chaos as a kind of hot house and move culture forward. 

Glenn Adamson has made a succinct and great show called Static at Friedman Benda that talks about the late 70s and 80s and shows inspired responses.
