,,w IITll f| them. I read the magazines and the big newspapers and watch the television. The news I am handed is damned near all bad. I didn't realize the times were so wicked. Reporters and commentators give me nothing but the bad side of things. Is there no good left in the world? We are surrounded by shoddy merchandise for which we have given an arm and a leg. We buy products, which may or may not work, built by workers who don't give a damn whether the products are any good or not. This isn't true of every- thing, of course, because there are still people who have pride in their work and what they produce. These are perverse times and may get worse. On a day like today, about 1940, I wasn't worrying about income tax or much of anything. Now these days are gone and we are reaping the problems we created.
