And finally, some things that probably wouldn’t make it into the newspapers today. Public discourse simply changes over the years.

  1. Lahey referring to “ghetto people”?

2. Selling self-defense as a figure-enhancer for women?

  1. A stand-out “issue” for me. Not only did I laugh at the juxtaposition of the “Maureen Cardoza Helps Nab Thieves” immediately followed by a photo of two little girls in jail, but add to that the inclusion of one of my Dad’s old campaign ads was also a pleasant surprise…(though I’m not sure having that so close to the ad for “Son of Blob” was necessary LOL!) There were several other references to people, places, and things I very fond memories of. Please continue to do what you’re doing, Bob…this stuff is GREAT!

  2. Totally agree with David Murgo’s comment. These posts from the archives are fantastic, typos and all.
