Chassey: We have grown in knowledge, but where is the wisdom?

Recently my wife of 71 years and I went to a movie. The cost for two senior citizens was $15. As I pocketed the change, I thought back to our first date: The price for two tickets to the movies in 1939 was 66 cents. Two cokes and two hamburgers afterward were 50 cents. Total cost: $1.16. Gas for the family car was 13 cents a gallon.
