I was reading a story about a 13-pound baby born in PA... the kid looks like he's three months old! And I came upon this sentence:
"When I polled all the pediatricians from this hospital, some of them whom date from the early 1980s, there's never been a baby on record that's this size," Sword said.
To me, the "early 80s" doesn't seem that long ago... I would feel more comfortable if it said "early 50s" or "early 60s" -- I might even be ok with "early 70s."
