People like to talk about how the 1950s were a simpler, sweeter time. It certainly looks like it when we re-watch black-and-white ‘50s sitcoms like “I Love Lucy” and “Leave it to Beaver.” Kids could walk to school, and people could leave their doors unlocked at night. The harshest profanity you’d hear was “gee willickers!” Everyone ate dinner together, and the wildest teenagers got was taking their sweetheart to a drive-in movie. Everyone smoked, but no one got cancer. Every mom was a fantastic cook, and every dad had swell car.
Of course, there was also the looming threat of nuclear annihilation hanging over everyone’s heads… but really, every decade has its challenges.
