Subject: RE: Origins: Who was Al in Buddy Can you Spare a Dime
Skiming through this revived thread just now, I noticed weelittledrummer back on 08 Jun 07 writing about how "the Great Crash of the stockmarket simply swept away ... pretensions of having made some headway in society" and adding a comment about being "glad not to live in such harsh times".

Pretty ironic, considering...
