I often put any project I write in a different decade just to roll the thought around in my head.

There's nothing like the piercing ring of an old-school telephone to really scare an audience.
A research group found that 56 percent of major companies surveyed in the late '80s agreed that 'employees who are loyal to the company and further its business goals deserve an assurance of continued employment.'

Like many other touchstones of twenty-first-century pop culture, 'The Sopranos' was hatched in the late Nineties, predicting a future that never arrived.
