I remember when I was a boy, and the president would die,
before you got a new one, you got rid of all the cultural gewgaws
from the period of the earlier regime, the cds, tapes, paintings, tv
shows, dvds, photographs, records or anything, you'd get rid of
them and then start a new period. It wasn't like now with internet
memory and classic rock and throwback playlists. It was better.
