Bicentennial forever!

We all got a little weird in 1976, and Mimi Smartypants remembers:

"One of my first memories that involved events outside of my own family was the great civic convulsion of 1976, when many neighborhoods painted their fire hydrants to look like short, squat, Founding Fathers. (Why? I do not know. I think America went a little crazy around the bicentennial.)"
