10 THINGS I MISS FROM the 20th CENTURY

Mels

10

Fresh Milk – Milk used to be a liquid that came in a sterile bottle from the dairy.   It would mysteriously appear on your porch.

 Mail boxes at my doorstep.  You never had to walk 2 blocks to get your mail.

8

When athletes didn’t use Performance Enhancing Drugs. (Steroids) Record books didn’t have asterisks next to the player due to congressional allegations.

7

Cars that looked like the company brand. (When a Buick looked like a Buick) Now every car looks like the bastard child of a Prius.

6

Safe Neighborhoods that weren’t gated. You could leave your doors unlocked and your kids knew that the street lights were their curfew. 

5

Drive in Diners (Not junk fast food holes)  A&W Root beer Drive ins were fine.  At least the meat was cooked in the same zip code.  They had Jukeboxes and pinball machines.

4

Movies like Casablanca that didn’t require special effects and gratuitous sex.  Actors actually had to study acting. 

3

 Schools that educated the student; not public hangouts that passed even the dumbest of Obamas for the federal dollars.

Ronald Reagan and the Pledge of Allegiance.

1

A healthy respect for the Holy Trinity. (GD was not allowed on TV, let alone cartoons) Politicians didn’t drop F bombs.

  1. AWESOME list. I agree with all of them. My wife and I were just talking about cars, take the badge off of a Ford and put it on a Mercedes and you would never know the difference.
