We said ‘yes ma’am’ and ‘yes sir’, ‘cause a good whooping still worked. And if we talked back, we got it again. Back when kids got in fights, they didn’t use guns or knives; a bloody nose was as far as it went. And we all ate our supper with a daddy and a mother at the table without a TV. Yeah, that’s how it was and that’s how it still oughta be.
