littlebytesnews's curator insight, April 8, 2013 10:41 PM

I didn't like the 80s because I was in high school and I didn't appreciate grown ups until I became one...now I can appreciate them for their legacy and what I have learned about them when it comes to defending individualism, freedom, capitalism and conservatism.

May they both RIP and be reunited to reminisce on their friendship and accomplishments.
