We Pre-WWII babies, the Abbreviated Generation, came into middle age just in time for the beginning of the great American austerity program, which really began with the re-election of Richard Nixon. Now, we are all facing perhaps even a worse fate. But, let us begin at the great turning point.

Would McGovern have been elected and successfully ended the Vietnam War, things may have improved for Americans from this point:

In 1969 I ordered a custom-built new Ford for about $2,500 ordered from and delivered to my dealer..

Model: 1969 Ford Custom 4-door sedan (the most basic model -- not in showrooms)

From: Former Ford Manufacturing Plant in St. Paul, Minnesota

Engine: 290 cc V-8

Color: Aqua

Extras: Power Steering; Automatic Transmission, Radio

Similar aqua colored cars (except for a police interceptor engine, lights and sirens and maybe some extra unspecified stuff) served as unmarked patrol cars used by the Minnesota Highway Patrol. A cousin of mine, a MHP sergeant, got a big kick out of my car. I could zoom up behind a line of traffic going up a hill and the cars would slow down and let me whiz pass.

The party ended in 1972 with the re-election of President Nixon. It was really the beginning of 'Morning in America' for the rich, but yet to be proclaimed as such.

Robert Kennedy was once asked to name the most decent man in the Senate. "George McGovern," he replied. "He's the only decent man in the Senate." (Aug. 16, 1968)
