My Dear Fine Art, thanks so much for your Look Back. ALWAYS much appreciated and educational!

Frank, your comments on the way it was are also always appreciated.

As Russ, said, maybe he was a product of his time, which of course can be so different depending on where one grew up,etc. And the thing about admiring people who may not be good role models...my own dad thought nothing of using derogartory names for people of different races, but considering many were his closest friends (one of his best friends was a "Dago"), it is my belief he did not mean anything terrible. It was just the the way of his Time to speak thus. Thank goodness mom thought differently and discouraged it, esp. in front of us kids.

I do think there are parts of socialism? which are worthy of consideration, as in HEALTH CARE, etc. Interesting thread.
