Those were the days as far as I am concerned.
As a whole you're probably right. Americans were more rational then, perhaps better educated, definitely better informed (no FOX news or Rush).
Every night my parents watched Walter Cronkite, my mother actually cried when he retired.
Good question. (And good evening, RattyP!)
Evidence of successful treppaning is surprisingly widespread in the archaeological record for the last (at least) 9000 years. Closer to our own time, I'm pretty sure that Beethoven could provide us with several examples of mental strain at dawn, as well as every other hour of the day, as could Liszt.
For the 18th century, i'll have to give that some thought -- Mozart certainly knew a thing or 2 about mental strain at dawn... For the 17th century, i'd definitely suggest Heinz Ignaz Franz Biber, but i'm not sure precisely which work in specific -- I was thinking of retiring tonight or awakening tomorrow to the accompaniment of Biber's violin sonatas, so i may have an answer for you tomorrow.
Mostly we went to NY State, but also New England and Florida. And my ex-sister-in-law had a house in Michigan. It was right on the St Clair River. She had a dock, swimming, a sailboat, waterskiing, and we used to get driven up river and then float down to her place on inner tubes-- about 3 hrs. It was great going over for the weekend. Beer, sun, swimming in small town USA. Seriously, wood and brick houses, tree-lined streets, white church steeple, all along the river. Beautiful!!
You're right , of course . I was thinking about my fellow Americans... being more rational back then .
