Remember when times were good?   According to a survey for the National Geographic Channel, 3 out of 4 American adults say the country was in a far better place during the 1980s than toady.   Even people who didn't experience Ronald Reagan, big hair or the first-run of Back to the Future say they love the '80s.  Back to the Future, as it happens, is considered the decade's most defining movie.   Meanwhile, 60 percent say that the late Michael Jackson is the '80s' musician who had the most impact on today's performers.  But as for iconic 1980s clothing items and accessories, most of the 1,000 people surveyed DON'T want shoulder pads, parachute pants, fanny packs and neon clothing to return.  However, over 50 percent wouldn't mind if leg warmers made a comeback.
