Do You Remember? Stanley J. Singer sjsinger Amen to much of what you post. I'm 81 and remember the wonderful moral world that we used to live in. Progress is great but when it eliminates the standards that are important to morality it becomes regression.

If we are honest with ourselves, most Americans live in fear. People can no longer go out at night, must barricade their dwelling as if it were a medieval fortress and hardly know or care who their neighbors are.

The wonderful small town of Houston has been transformed into a jungle as it grew. Politicians lie and grow rich in their office rather than serve the people.

I believe that I would give up a great deal of our so-called progress for the wonderful neighborly life we once led.
