Today’s highly interesting read (03/12/21): Looney Times

Today’s read is from one of my favorites, humor columnist Tom Purcell. Here’s an excerpt:

Is the world finally coming to grips with the wrongs I endured as a child growing up in the 1970s?

I came of age before 24-hour cable news channels sensationalized childhood abductions and made every parent in America terrified their kid was likely to become the next victim.

We ’70s kids were in constant physical danger — real danger.

Somehow I survived growing up without losing a single arm or leg. But now, more than 40 years later, I’m wondering if my young psyche was permanently traumatized by television cartoons.

Can you relate?
