    I was a teen in the 60’s and I don’t remember Jim Morrison being called The Lizard King.

    Can anyone show me where the word “teen” was used to describe young people before Pat Boone’s “Twixt 12 & 20?”

    Doesn’t “Ivan the Terrible” translate to “Big Bad John”?

    Mass murders, poetry and religious music… seems a likely trio to me.

    Ah the good old days. They built something to last for 1.5 years and it’s lasted 90. Today they build something for 5 years and you’re lucky if it lasts 1.

    Developers do that – put up impressive arches, etc and once they sell the properties, could care less!
