How about as a young lad standing with the tin foil around the antenna wire of the 9" round Fada black and white tv to get the best reception while watching the commercial " See The USA In Your Chevrolet" and watching the Friday and Saturday nights fights with all the neighbors in attendance!

I truly feel sorry for young people today, I would not want to be growing up right now.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

WELL, our pre-teenage lives were pretty much war free, and the years right after high school were sandwiched in between the Korean and Vietnam conflicts - I served 2 years in the Army from 1955-57 at Walter Reed Hospital in D.C. as an orderly on a Leukemia ward - duty was pretty laid back in those years as well.

Turning back the clock would be neat - the teenagers and 20 year olds in today's world really have no clue as to what this nation has lost of it's soul, morality, and character over the last 60 years or so - and sadly, it just keeps getting worse and worse...
