Those Were the Days


We were deep in WWII and patriotism was running high.  Casablanca won the Academy Award for best picture and still ranks as one of the best ever made.  A normal US postage stamp cost 3 cents and it made it just as quick as a first class one today (maybe quicker).  The Vice-President was Henry Wallace…sorry you never heard about him.  Dwight D. Eisenhower was the Time man of the year…which he repeated in the late 50’s.  The Cardinals won the Series but some professional games, like tennis, were cancelled for the year.
