Well, *I* didn't know about it in 1971.  *Sesame Street* was novelty 
then.  Indiana might have been behind the times.

Heh.  I intend to leave Li'l Wyatt back in 1971 to grow up the normal 
way.  Wyatt's condition back then is a longstanding plot thread I now 
close.  (Don't ask me where I started that thread; I can't find it even 
with the help of the specialized Google search from 
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2011/ .)  But tomorrow never knows when 
*any* concept may show up in my stories.

Thanks.  I sense you've had no time to do fun things such as writing.

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
