In a mere 9 years, I find that the cultural references are stale. Actually, I believe they were stale when the book was published. Examples: name of sheriff on Bonanza, latest Baseball Triple Crown winner. (There's been another Baseball Triple Crown winner since this book was published!) Bob Hope, Stalin, PM Attlee of The United Kingdom. Music of another generation. No references to the internet or smart phones or drones that one can buy at Staples. No hybrid cars. Solving these acrostics brought the technological and political pace of change in the last ten years into clear focus for me. No wonder I can't communicate that well with my grandchildren..
