"No we didn't light it, but we tried to fight it"

Mr. Billy Joel has this week's Friday traditio. So, I'll start roughly where I entered the picture, on the cutting edge of Gen. X:

Birth control, Ho Chi Minh, Richard Nixon back again
Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, punk rock

Begin, Reagan, Palestine, Terror on the airline
Ayatollah's in Iran, Russians in Afghanistan

Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride, heavy metal suicide
Foreign debts, homeless Vets, AIDS, Crack, Bernie Goetz

Hypodermics on the shores, China's under martial law
Rock and Roller cola wars, I can't take it anymore

In words of Journey:Oh, the movie never ends/
It goes on and on and on and on!
So, don't stop believin'!

Christos Anesti
