Response to The Magistrate (Reply #29)

33. Sir....I don't want to ask...but, what were YOU reading 40 years ago....

I don't want to ask....I don't want to assume....but, your insinuation about reading "Workers World" (I assume a Socialist or Communist Newspaper or such) I don't know because I wasn't aware of it or read it== so I take you reference for just the mention as something derogatory.

Are you aware of the McCarthy Hearings? The lingering stench of that? I think you might be of an age who would remember that time.

I'm assuming "Workers World" might have been something that would have been unacceptable at that time for Sen. McCarthy and his witch hunters seeking out the "Commie Pinko's" amongst prominent Americans.

OTOH....maybe the "Workers World" you mention was a newsletter or paper that was the forerunner for the advent of the Fast Food Industry? I apologize if I mistook your post as asparagus on the OP.

Whatever...........
