The "good old days" were not good. My list of shitty facets of life in the 50s, 60s and 70s would require extensive use of the middle button on your mouse in order to scroll to the end.
BUT there is one thing I miss:
Pictures of criminals in the post office. Today, there is nothing to read while standing in line at the post office. I used to follow the Top 10 Most Wanted as closely as I did the records on the WLS Silver Dollar Survey. Checking the fellow patrons out to see if they resembled anyone on the FBI list added to the fun.
