said by bgraham:This was in the late '40s and '50s. We were a rural community of small farms and a neighborhood where the church, school, filling station and Grange Hall were social hubs.
If it's not too personal, how long ago was that? That was a time when people ran for local office so that they could do something good for the people. Now it seems, politicians are in it for what they can get out of it.
BTW, I too thought the commercial was great.
Being on the board or a trustee was an honor entrusted to well established citizens, not professional politicians or businessmen looking to bend things their way at the expense of the people they served.
But the interstate came through, put in an interchange and wiped out the filling station, church and Grange hall. It was never the same...
Buckle Up. It makes it harder for the aliens to suck you out of your car.
