  • 1957 vs 2010

    I was born in 1957, so they say. I don't remember a lot of it. Ask me abut 1963, I can recall some of that. That's about the time I became aware of my surroundings. A little bit, at least.

    Kennedys, the Cold War, race riots, the whole country was in upheaval but I was playing in the yard with tree sticks and little plastic green army men. All was well. I can't imagine the stress the adults went through back then, trying to protect us kids from what was really happening.

    Sue Unit forwarded me this. It's from her neice in Pittsburgh. She's ....maybe 13? The content is sort of old, maybe everybody's seen it before. But if the kids are sending this stuff gives us all something to consider, perhaps. Remember, this is from a ... I guess she's an early teenager. Too young to me to be sending stuff like this, but this is what the kids are exposed to, via the internet and life in general....

          the last one seems a bit ridiculous, but the rest seem about right
          Rumors of my demise by rollover have been greatly exaggerated.
