Wow. I guess it's like our WWII vets. It's been 70 years since the end of their war and it was a little more than that for these Civil War vets. Lots of change for both. I guess the changes for the civil war vets were more startling.
I think the transformations in our lives are as profound. Compare mailing a post card to a friend from vacation, versus twitter. Or going to a library to do research, versus google.
Or your mother's rule of taking a dime on a date in case you have to make a phone call.Every so often I see a movie where someone leaves the table in a restaurant, for example, to go to the pay phone. It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was standing at LGA at banks of payphones with 50 other business people.
