Bill, As just another oldster, I loved your educational flashback. But what concerns me, is that my kids think we're just old f*rts that long for the old days. They don't see that the changes in America's morals and in governmental intrusion in the last 2 decades have been radical and seem to be increasing. to quote a Merle Haggard tune, "Are we rollin' down hill, like a snowball headed for hell, is there no chance at all for the flag and the liberty bell?" I say we're picking up speed.
