Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather have enjoyed nothing so much over the last week as the reemergence of “Bennifer” as a cultural phenomenon. It takes the back to the heady days of the early 2000s, and they overthink what has changed between then and now, and why a person might want to back and look at that formative moment.

    I declare that we’re in These Unprecedented Times of Things Geting Back to Normal(TM). Drop the period-appropriate “Mission Accomplished” banner and strike up the band!

    I hear Matt on making school a difficult thing. I didn’t fight hard enough to take classes outside my major in college, because I let the department heads convince me that it would set a bad precedent. Granted, it was an engineering school and one request was a spacecraft design course, but still, I should’ve fought for it as a challenge, in retrospect.

    One interesting point about the era that I don’t think was mentioned, though, is that I (at least) associate it with the period where the lines finished blurring between “legitimate” entertainment news (upcoming releases, reviews, interviews, and so forth) and what used to be the “gossip column.”
