I'm 44, so I remember the Nineties with a clarity and sense of purpose that the millennials who read this blog may not.  So, when something pops up that fairly defines the decade, I feel compelled to share it with those younger than I, who may have been too consumed with their Surge sodas and TGIF  on ABC to notice.  To share our history.  To remember.
