  1. Subscribing to the Saturday Evening Post was one of the best investment I made. It brings the social past to the present and includes the troubles we had then and and now. Wonderful coverage in all areas of life.

  2. Love the top ‘toon by Goldstein. I threw more than one teacher for a loop at school myself, believe it or not. The bottom one (also from May ’60) has a caption that’s far more timely now than then. My favorite though is number 5 by Zeis, the opening picture cartoon. She’s at her wits end wanting those kids outta there. NOW!!!
