I remember when they had parades for the Colts and Orioles in the 70's and the Orioles in 83. Not a single barrier had to be put up. There was an imaginary line that you did not cross. That line was the curb. Now its knock the barriers down and to hell with anybody but myself. There are no family values anymore.
IMHO, I think we as a society are regressing in a downward spiral at an alarming rate. We peaked with rule of law and unwritten laws in the 60's, 70's, and part of the 80's. The entitlement society is destroying all that we stood for, for many, many years.
I feel sorry for anybody growing up now because I don't see it getting any better before it hits the pits.
