Iacocca Ascendant

According to the New York Times, there is a Lee Iacocca reference in a movie that all the youngsters will be going to see this weekend, which makes me think back to the time that I grumbled and felt sorry for myself because no one younger than me - that is, no person I meet on a daily basis - remembers who Lee Iacocca is even though he has gone to the trouble of starting a "blog" so he can relate to the youth of today, like me. Yet now they will know who Lee Iacocca is, thanks to the popular talking picture. It is a complicated matter and I am aware that I have not disentangled its many cultural and personal threads.
