  1. Larry,I could not agree more. I was born in 1948 and we had news in am on tv and news after dinner then ready for bed. We took LIFE mag & Saturday Evening Post. Research was done in Library. I wouldnt trade it for anything !.Mom was born in 1917 and her whole family's life revolved around a giant radio with rich deep sound. She said all her life she wouldnt trade her era either for today.I had never heard meanness from the public unti I was 48 with 1st computer. It just wasnt prevalant. Exciting spats between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley was high theatre. It was of course LIVE TV ! Those were the days. Love you Larry !!!
