This isn't primarily about language, but it's a timely reminder about people harking back to a (non-existent) Golden Age, 'before everything went to the dogs'. The headline could come from today's papers, but look at the date.

Have you noticed that the New Yorker has been running cartoons 'From Our Archives' (from the 30's-40's), mainly about the financial situation? They work as well, if not better (for the irony), than when they were first published. Indeed it all goes in circles!
