The best of times (nostalgia)

Seems like only 50 years ago these were around. :beer:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

The clip from the dance show on KTVI reminded me of a kinescope (transferred to tape) my late father - who had worked at KTVI - showed us of Ike and Tina Turner appearing on that show in the very early years. Another clip of Ike on that station has been posted to youtube, as well.

GREAT Post! Thank you much. Took me back to when I parted my hair down the side instead of all across my head. As we said back in the day, "F*ckin' A!"  :thumbsup2: :thumbsup2: :thumbsup3:
