I'm not a great fan of nostalgia that looks back to days gone by as great times compared to the present, conveniently forgetting all the crap that went with those times . . . polio, smallpox, racism, sexism, inequality, abuse. . .
Snopes.com refers to these type of messages as "glurge".
That said, I note that I posted an item in yesterday's Bytes that looked at modern reality, comparing what we have gained in today's world and what we have lost, so I realise that sets up a contradiction to what I said at the beginning of this post.
Here is another contradiction . . .
Friend and colleague Vince C sent me the below item, the text accompanied the item sent, they are not my words.
