More text message fun; this time 80s nostalgia
We miss the 80s, when medicine still cured illnesses; doctors took care of the sick and dying; people wore clothing for photographs; borrowed money was returned; you didn’t need a paternity test to know who the child’s father was; schools weren’t money making enterprises; being sick was respected; housing was allocated; idiots couldn’t be professors; the married didn’t take second wives; meat could be confidently eaten; rats were afraid of cats; and people had clean consciouses.
怀念1980年代, 那时候药是可以治病的；医生是救死扶伤的；照相是要穿衣服的；借钱是要还的；孩子他爹是不用做鉴定的；学校不是为赚钱的；有了病是看得起的；住房是分配的；白痴是不 能当 教授的；已婚者是不能找二奶的；肉是可以放心吃的；老鼠还是很怕猫的；人还是有良心的。
And sometimes I do wonder (with Rey Chow) if nostalgia is no more than dissatisfaction with the present, looking for an anchor (any anchor) in the past. . .
