I Love the 80s: Trends
Adoption sitcoms included Diff'rent Strokes, Facts of Life, Webster, and Punky Brewster. One of the popular trends predicted by these comedies was the creation of biracial families-Strokes, Webster, and Facts (Tootie) all featured white families (or in two cases single parents) who adopted a black child/children. Take that Brangelina! Also 3 of these comedies featured single parents who choose to raise a child/children. Quite admirable really.
One of the most popular trends of the 80s was jogging. A puzzle master and writer managed to popularize the trend after writing several books on the subject until his sudden death from a massive heart attack at the age 52 in 1984. What was his name?
