Edith Wharton titled one of her novels, set in the 1870s, "The Age of Innocence." But I think she was being slightly ironic, since the innocence she was writing about had to be guarded by ironclad conventions and a considerable amount of hypocrisy. As a country we are, I have to believe, sadder but wiser than we have ever been, and we carry as a side effect an equally sad cynicism. It's the cynicism that does as much as anything to explain the decline in voting turnouts.

August 28, 1988 | STEPHEN FARBER and MARC GREEN, Stephen Farber and Marc Green are the authors of "Outrageous Conduct: Art, Ego and the Twilight Zone Case," published this summer by Arbor House / William Morrow.
SEVERAL WEEKS after the "Twilight Zone" trial ended last year, one of the case's five defend ants, helicopter pilot Dorcey Wingo, escorted a visitor through the dusty parking lot of the Western Helicopter Co. in Rialto. Wingo stopped to stare at the light planes circling the adjacent airport and at the row of enormous helicopters parked on a nearby landing ramp. He had piloted dozens of combat missions in Vietnam, and since that time, flying has been his life, as well as his livelihood.

The Oscars wimped out again, settling for "Miss Daisy" when they could have climbed with "My Left Foot," but I suppose we should be thankful for small favors. "Field of Dreams" didn't win. When I first saw this year's five nominees for Best Picture, it was a little like looking at one of those drawings of a trumpet, a trombone, a tuba and a ham sandwich, with the caption: What's Wrong With This Picture?
