50 years of Peanuts…

After 12 years I have 25 Volumes of “The Complete Peanuts” and thought I was done.  There is a 26th due in November (RATS!).

While typing on my 1937 Underwood (Noiseless) it kept causing problems… and I was reminded of a strip when Lucy buys a balloon but is unable to blow it up.  She ties a string to it anyway and drags it along behind her.

I continue to type… and post it anyway (one of the lesson learned from Peanuts)!

Years later… the same thoughts

On PBS they have been showing profiles of Presidents.  In 1960 Kennedy talked about getting “America’s edge back”… which sounded a lot like “making America Great Again”.  In 1964 Johnson questioned the temperament of Goldwater… (which sounded oddly familiar).

Presidents lied and misled and concealed….  the only difference between then and now is that back then “hope” was part of the campaign as well.  “The only thing to fear is fear itself…” “Some see things and ask why? I see the things and ask why not”… I misquote.

However I had a sense that in past times there was a belief in the power of good and no matter what presented itself today… tomorrow was another day.
