CNN PRODUCER NOTE David Meaux of Houston, Texas, says this is a picture of himself with friends Dave, left, and Pete, right, in 1982. They were on a trip to Zion National Park in Utah. 'I was at Zion on a two-week vacation with a couple of pals of mine to take a break after a long time in the field working together. We had met in another part of the country working in the oil boom at that time. After a few years of working together, we ran out to the West to take a break and have some fun.' He says he's politically much the same as he was back then, but he is happy to see that the disco era is over. In general, he considers the 1980s to be a period of 'uplift and rebirth' after the '70s that continued until very recently. And yes, he did watch 'Crossfire' back in the past. 'My politics haven't really changed at all. In my early 20s, I was a moderate conservative thinker and pretty much am the same way today. I prefer the middle ground and don't take too well to extremism or radicalism, no matter what side of the political spectrum it comes from.'
