If you were troubled that a Ramones cover song from 1993 was on the radio in the comic book store even though the show is set in 1989, I understand. Normally we would never do something like that, but the truth is I got excited by the lyrics "Someone told me long ago, there's a calm before the storm" and how they foreshadowed the tornado. I also liked the rebellious tone the Ramones set in a store that Mary felt inappropriate for Sheldon. ...
