But I have been cutting down and increasing my old movies and TV shows.
Trying to go back to the good ol' days, they were not perfect, but they were not this!
It seems to me I have been watching a steady decline for more than 40 years, and I know it doesn't change anything, but any small thing I can do to escape these awful times is worth a try.
And I'm sure someone will come along and tell me I'm in denial etc, I don't care what they think and I would probably see them as part of the problem.
If in some small way it is able to give the illusion of an age of decency, then I'll do it, whatever happened to common decency?
But you grew up with computers. I bet she checks with you to fix things. That is neat to know about your Dad. Did they have the huge computers? Boy,what a grounding you have.
It is amazing how our lives have changed in 3 generations I started using them at work. Never saw so many hysterical women. But one smart teacher said play with them,you can not hurt them.And 95% of the problems can be solved by turning them off,wait,then back on. Still true today unless your computer is failing. My big one is gathering dust.
Some people just don't care, some parrot "all politicians are the same," probably a result of their own political ignorance, but such a horrible event, to me seems bound to cause anxiety, I mean, it's only the whole country...

Or, someone did push the wrong buttons and the machine went "haywire."
But, you learn in electronics that you might mess up some data, but you are not going to "break" the machine by merely operating it.
You can break industrial machines that move like robots, but not a standing computer or other purely electronic device.
Here is a good example of a TV computer, the Seaview's from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea...
The giant "indicator array" always puzzled me:
"We have a flashing red warning light, we have a problem!"
"Which warning light?"
"Umm... let's see, it's the *fifteen, sixteen,* seventeenth row... umm... *nine, ten,* eleventh column over..."
