Even with regular Air Raid Drills and gruesome descriptions of nuclear war (”Don’t look at the flash or your eyeballs will melt!) I STILL felt more secure and safe in my Beloved America in the Fifties than I do now.

Remember Khrushchev banging his shoe on the desk? LOL!

The Good Guys were Good and the Bad Guys were BAD. I Loved the Fifties!

OK...I know the “shoe thing” was probably in the early 60’s. The “Fifties” ended on November 22, 1963. For me, anyway.

Ditto! And it was reflected in television programming.
