Since Beckeye, Coaster Punchman and now Bubs have been waxing nostalgic about the 80's, I thought I'd get in on it.
The summer of 1983, I was having the time of my life. I'd finally changed my major to political science, taking two summer school classes-- "Eastern European Politics and Government" and "Political Parties," which was by taught by Joe Connelly, my advisor and a very memorable guy. I worked in the food service of a dorm, so I had money for the first time in my college career, and was developing the friendships that would turn out to be lifelong, including the one with my friend Mark, who died last year.
In 1983, MTV still actually played music videos. This was one of them: China, by New Orleans natives The Red Rockers.
