TALKIN' 'BOUT THAT GENERATION 

Lots of bloggers have been saying enough already! to the Deep Throat coming out party but Megan McCardle of Asymmetrical Information says it best:
To journalists ten or twenty years older than me, this is the long-awaited end to a grand mystery. To people my age or younger, it just doesn't matter that much. Baby boomers, many of whom seem to have trouble accepting the fact that time has passed, often seem incredulous that the major formulating events of their lives simply aren't that interesting to everyone else. Vietnam and Watergate have become the language of public debate, even though both ended over thirty years ago.

Guess the same could be said for the Civil War, WW's I and II, Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust.... it's called history.

Yes. As opposed to "news."

It's news as it occurs.
