Mike, time is a construct people came up with measured by the passing of events, and yes since events are happening faster in the past 20 years .... time has effectively sped up because time is fluid. Not just your imagination. Also the older someone is the harder time they have adjusting to the pace of events.

The Nam years were far worse in my opinion because of the draft, because of the total annihilation threat during the Cold War, because of violence against the Civil Rights Movement, coupled with students marching against the war, some being killed by police at Kent State, and assassinations, attempted assassinations of leaders. Far more soldiers died during that era than Iraq. If we had the internet and instantaneous communication we have now perhaps things might not have been so turbulent with so many unnecessary deaths.
