image for 'Old House' Nostalgia Growing in US
This 'Old House' (circa 1970)

US and A - A recurrent trend has blanketed the nation overnight as historic preservationists have popped up like mushrooms everywhere.

Responding to a desire for a simpler time when the housing 'market' was actually governed by earthly laws of supply and demand, community associations are advocating that the term 'Old House' now loosely applies to anything pre-1970.

While nostalgia for yesteryear is not uncommon, this peculiar yearning for what life used to be like several decades ago is perceived by actual historians to be more like an ostrich sticking its head in the ground.

In contrast, a true 'antique' is typically defined as an item that is 100 years old or more (except for 'antique cars' which are generally over 25 years of age according to the Antique Automobile Club of America).

Meanwhile, Native Americans silently watch as real estate surrendered to conquering strangers is officially designated an "Historic Landmark" under new ownership.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
