It wasn't a simpler time, it was now only then. There were still rumors of wars, financial hardships and medicine was pretty archaic...the only thing they had going for them that we don't have now...is national pride and patriotism among adults and college age youth. Something that is hard to find these days...if it exists at all.

Well said Martin. The most important things are getting hard to find these days.

Visiting the old frontier post of Fort Laramie I was struck by astute military planning that placed the post bakery next to the stable. This was before the days of window and door screens, and those little black things in your bread weren't raisins.

Our memory tends to be selective, and we remember the positive while we forget the negative. Like the rest of us, I'm nostalgic for certain aspects of the past. But I've also read Otto Bettmann. Would I want to go back to 1890 or 1915 or 1940? I'd love to visit. I'm not so sure I'd want to live there.

Yeah,.....it'd be nice to go back, if only we could take our doctors and dentists with us, eh?

Go back selectively yes! I would like to be treated by Grayfeather again, he knew how to heal. But in the 70's our government changed the rules and just because my grandmother was Creek no longer made me eligible to be treated by the tribal medicine man, in fact if he treated any one who did not live on the reservation he was subject to jail time. His children did not follow in his footsteps and now that he is gone they want to know what he knew about roots and herbs. Oh well! rant over
