Seems like a lot of things started their decent ~50 years ago. The biggest and most inpactful being our society.
I get all warm and fuzzy when I hear friends of mine (late 70’s y/o Korean War vets) make comments like: “I’m glad I’m on my way out.”
They agree too; the fall started in the 60’s.
Being from a large family, we missed the ascent; I was paying high school tuition before I ever went to college. I’m glad, otherwise I would think this sucks...
