“It was the best of times and it was the worst of times.”
-Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

At least one computer in every home, and a personal telephone on almost everyone’s belt. People are buying their 3rd and 4th cars. Our military is the most feared throughout the world. Indeed, in many ways, it seems like the best of times.
