In/Out: 1993

The List: what’s out, what’s in as 1993 dawns

By Cathy Horyn
Washington Post Staff Writer

So it's 1993 and what do you have to look forward to?

Four years of Bill and Hill, for starters. Ping and Pong. Rhodes scholar and multiple winner of the College Bowl. One can only imagine the tete-a-tetes, the deep pillow discussions, the connubial cramming. How are things in Bosnia, darling? Any thoughts on the deficit, dear?

But you're ready for the Dynamic Duo. After all, there's no hope for Charles and Diana, Woody and Mia, or Jack and what's-her-name. They're finished, washed up in the headlines with Sinead, Euro Disney and Ed Rollins. Remember him? Oh, well.

Things change. You're older. You're smarter. And maybe you don't know a Pitt from a Perry, but at least you don't care.
