I know its a BTB and I can do whatever I feels like.... but I get stuck in the trap of wanting things to feel relatively realistic to me. If they don't, I lose interest. Even if the reader might not care if I hand-wave some real issue and basically say "that never happened here", because its my little fantasy world.... I need Papa to keep buying in.

gotta do some more watching of the 1987 and 1988 stuff to see if I can get into it enough.
