The year was 1980. In the United States, Jimmy Carter was president. The Yearly Inflation Rate for the USA hit 13.58% while the Year End Close of Dow Jones Industrial Average was 963.  Interest Rates at the Year End for the Federal Reserve were 21.5%. If you were looking to buy a new house, expect to spend roughly $68,700 while your average salary was $19,500.00. The Pittsburgh Steelers were the Super Bowl Champions, the New York Islanders won the Stanley Cup, The Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA Finals, and The Philadelphia Phillies were the World Series Champions.

In global news, the Iran-Iraq War began. John Lennon is shot to death. The Soviet Union falls to the US in hockey at the Miracle on Ice game and Post-It Notes are invented.
