Classical Notes

The Soviet Union has never existed

This may make some of you feel old, but today's college freshmen weren't born yet when the Soviet Union existed. They've also never been on an an airplane when smoking was allowed and have always used "Google" as a verb. Those are some of the cultural landmarks on the annual list compiled by Beloit College. Anything you'd like to add here?

PS: As one who abhors Andrew Lloyd-Webber, this entry gets my vote for the scariest entry: "25. Phantom of the Opera has always been on Broadway." Ewww!
