Posted: May 26, 2014 at 4:14 a.m.

This has been a special year for anniversaries. We've already marked the 50th anniversary of the arrival in America of the Beatles (which ushered in the "counterculture") and the 50th anniversary of the initiation of LBJ's "War on Poverty" (which changed the culture in other ways, most of them bad). And in November, we will get the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the symbolic end of the Cold War.
