    All I know is I would certainly not answer the 1960s.

    As much as I like that statement, I don't think its entirely true, unless there is some big change in our course.

    I remember in the '70s there was the Partridge Family and the Brady Bunch.

    There was no crime. There was no cancer. There was nothing but sibling rivalry.

    Best decade ever...was the decade that we kicked the British Monarchy to the curb. That act alone is what has made us the nation that we are today...be that good or bad in your eyes imo doesn't matter to me. I love this country. Faults and all.
