Remember the good old days, when everything was better than it is today?

With all the crises we’ve got with energy and the economy, I guess I’ve been feeling a bit of nostalgia for times past.


Remember when:

— three dollars could buy you a gallon of gasoline? 

— illegal immigration was the No. 1 issue in the country?

— half of the Senate and a third of the House were running for president?

— your home was a gold mine waiting to be tapped?

— the Hollywood writers were on strike and the TV shows really stank, so you began reading again and pursuing hobbies and talking to those around you, and you realized you didn’t really miss TV all that much?


Those were the good old days.

If only we’d known it then.
