I tell ya, things were different back in the day. I have a bunch of Reader's Digests from the late 1950s and early 1960s and I'm sloooooowly making my way through them. But I thought I'd take a few blog posts and share some articles. In light of today's modern, intelligent, advanced, illuminated thinking many of these articles show that not much has changed. Or sometimes the articles show the beginning of the horrible mess we're in now. I've also included an advertisement for each. Click on each image to see it super-sized (a foreign term back in 1959, the year of these articles.) Enjoy!
