was thinking about trump and his cult
which got me thinking about the Branch Davidians (I thought "Covidians" might be funny),
and it led me to thinking about all that shit that went down back then

these were my teenage years
might explain why I'm so fucked up ;)

short list

Waco
Ruby Ridge
Olympic Park Bombing
Unibomber
Dr. Kavorkian
Tupac and Biggie
OJ
Nancy Kerrigan
Lorenna Bobbit
Oklahoma City
Columbine
Unibomber

and that's just off the top of my head

I think these kinds of lists can be done for any decade or even any year. The folks over at JibJab.com used to do these hilarious videos about the year in review. Good for a chuckle

a lot of good music came from the 90's too
a lot of which I think I appreciate more now than I did then

the economy zoomed. housing, stock market, tech jobs, college graduates getting courted by big companies like high school football players by big universities. unemployment down to about 4%. every income level improved, every demographic improved, the crime rate was cut almost in half, we had no combat soldiers on the ground for 7 of Clinton's 8 years, 4 straight budget surpluses, an assault weapon ban passed....i wasn't crazy about 90's music as much as classic rock or even the 70's and 80's, but i am sure there must have been some good stuff in there somewhere, guys like fleetwood mac and santana and huey lewis and the stones and the pretenders and tom petty, who were great in many decades.....
