BBC: The Disco "One of the Most Important Inventions" of the 20th Century

Ummm... maybe to Andrew Sullivan:

A 76-year-old French woman with dyed red hair and a business-like look in her eye can legitimately lay claim to one of the most important inventions of the last century: the discotheque.

It's hardly any wonder the BBC reports the news the way they do when the staff considers strobe lights, velvet ropes, & I'll Tumble 4 Ya to be the zenith of Western civilization.

Apparently the disco just edged out radio & radar, penicillin, and, you know, human flight for the distinction.

Dr. Jonas Salk is said to be wearing a big Cat in the Hat chapeau and a necklace of glow-sticks wonderin' where all the love is.

Thanks to RCL.
