in many ways, at least economically, you boomers did get to experience a more charmed culture & life from ike thru the late '60's.

not only did the vietnam war, inevitable civil rights strife & watergate corruption later tear away at the seams of tranquiltiy, but it was also the debt, oil shortages & stagflation that would reek more havoc. the stability of the ike & jfk years was framed by the economic health of the nation. your right, cost of living was dramatically better as oppossed to today. people got much more for their dollar (even inflation adjusted) then today. manuf hadnt been outsourced & wages hadnt been diluted. inturn, communities were also safer. as long as you were willing to work, one could find a really decent standard of living in many diverse parts of the nation.

we have more material things now, but a lot less quality of life in re to the stress & double income it takes to acquire them as opposed to the era you point to. it was in some ways an ideal time to come of age (race issues aside), at least before '70 when things started turning more nasty.

I always dug, queen of the highway on morrison hotel. I always thought jim summed it up pretty well in re to the idealistic side of the era & generation he grew up w/. Even w/ the danger and disillusion the song implies happening before & much soon to come, it does seem those old enough got to capture a nice bubble of idealism & prosperity from the '50's thru the '60's.

hope now, we're not down the funnel end of that whirlpool w/ no hope back up.

Very good observation of those times and especially the economics that contributed to that way of living.

I can remember in the summer of 1966, as I was stopping for gasoline in Arlington, Texas, paying 18 cents for a gallon of regular gas. I thought that was such a deal because in Dallas it was as high as 21, 22 cents a gallon.

The lowest I seen was $1

Manhime you're a tool. That's who I thought Lana was. Janet do you really think Jim was that opportunistic?!

I thought what Kerry wrote about these pictures was worth noting.


"When I share my Doors / Morrison collection with friends, the Lana Photos absolutely get the single biggest reaction of any item in my extensive 17-year collection! They show a side of Morrison that few people have seen or even know about."

I can't remember when gas was a dollar, perhaps the early 70's? I also remember when a package of cigarettes was 35 cents.

Now I feel ancient :lol:
