There's only one way to end the gif debate. Switch the playlist to static jpegs.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/13 10:18am Caryn:

And just to put my 2 cents in, I say gif sometimes with a hard g, sometimes with a soft g. However, there is a file format .jif, which is pronounced the same way gif with a soft g is, so the soft g can lead to confusion (and, I suspect, is pronounced with a soft g just to mess with the .jif developers, so is kinda a bitchy move, which I oppose), so I still kinda prefer the hard g.

Simply based on the cover, I kinda want to read "What's Happening?" Of course, I suspect I won't develop such a fondness for it as I have for the Village-based "Man from UNCLE" episode, which just highlighted what a square Napoleon Solo was compared to Ilya Kuryakin.

The Falangist government fell in the early late 70s; I'll guess that the relaxed atmosphere Ken felt was a reaction to the failure of a military coup attempt in 1982, which failure probably both for a time discredited the Right and signalled to everyone else that things really _had_ changed...just as the abortive Brezhnevite coup against Gorbachev ended the Soviet Union.
