Last minute papers requiring citations are a lot easier with the Internet. I actually had to spend several hours a week in the dark recesses of the Library of Congress for my senior thesis in 1974, but some things never change. While I'd like to say I was more enthusiastic and took my research more seriously than this fellow, it was all just work to be completed for a grade. Youth and education are wasted on the young. What I would give today for a chance to live in DC and do nothing but research in the library and National Archives all day.

You had a doll like I have? :) I've never seen another one -- they're at least 50 years old!
