I often hear people say thing like "We didn't have all thesehealth problemsback when I was growing up". My reply to then is "Yep, usually eveyone died before they had a chance to develop them". Or as Paul Harvey said "We call it the good old days because we wern't old and we weren't good".
It would have been nice to be able to carry a gun around without any problems but back then they needed that gun much more than we do now no matter what you think. I grew up in the wonderful 50's and I don't really care to go back.
