El Jefe

Yes. Yes, yes, yes. Yes. Although I'll dispute you at some point on "kidney stone of a decade" (through some kind of comment-as-blog-post riff on my Seventies childhood -- I put the kidney stone in the Eighties, probably for the same reasons as you do it ten years earlier, namely starting off with a rotten Republican administration and being a teenager.) Once you peel away the fashionable types in the fashionable places much of it (particularly the second half) wasn't so bad as the fashionable stuff, which was obviously god-awful to some folks even then. But yes. Harry does look (with Cazale's character whose name I forget) like the only grown-up in the room. And that may have been part of the point, as it seems like you allude.
