They Wrote 'Em in the Good Ol' Days

Woolworths Door, originally uploaded by CraftyGuy.

Patti and I just got done watching "White Christmas" on television. Why can't they make movies like that anymore?

A simpler time, when movies told a story and entertained you with true talent - unlike the mindset of today where movies must either gross you out or ram some sort of misguided person's sense of "social consciousness" down your throat. Not that social consciousness is a bad thing necessarily, but it depends on whose version it is, plus I don't go to the movies to get preached at (so shut the hell up and crawl back under your rock, Michael Moore!)

Anyway, I digress. It's a darn shame that the world couldn't be as simple and innocent as it once was.

There was something to be said for the ol' Woolworth's lunch counter. I remember them as a kid growing up in the 70s. They were on their way out at the time, but at least they stayed around just long enough to give us "young'uns" a glimpse to an earlier, less complicated time.

I could really go for a chocolate malt now...
