A Look at The Past
Here's a nostalgic column by Cindy Adams about life in 1913 compared to today: "Per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, excluding holiday buffets Americans spend 14 percent of today’s income on food. In 1913, women didn’t vote, didn’t work, didn’t have freezers, microwaves, computers and before the atom bomb, smartphones, moon landing, color TV, iPads and reality housecretins, and before couples’ double jobs, the families were larger and average annual salary smaller at $800." They also didn't have Obamacare back then!
