Things That Did Exist In NY In 1963 And Things That Did Not Exist In NY In 1963

The Headquarters of The 3 Major Networks were and are still here in NYC:

There were NO Cell Phones with Web and Text Messaging in 1963;

There was no World Wide Web;

All Phone Service Originated through AT & T, via The Bell System, through landlines. That service is now run by Verizon, a Baby Bell;

A Winning Mets Team didn't exist in 1963. Transistor Radios were becoming big;

The NYC Bus and Subway Fare was $.15 per ride. Pizza was $.15 per slice;

There were still privately-operated Bus Lines, mostly in Queens;

Abortion Did NOT Exist;

What has THIS World Come To?

Later!

Another thing we didn't have in 1963: abortion on demand. And it would have been unthinkable to see cardinals and bishops hobnobbing with pro-abort politicians.

What IS the world coming to?

In fact, come to think of it, WHAT pro-abort politicians? What politician would have dared to come out in favor of such a thing in 1963?

Pro Abortion Politicians were UNHEARD of:

Then, again, there was the Traditional Latin Mass;

There was no WWW;

It was a Calmer Time in NY;

I remember when a group of Mothers in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, protested to run an Abortionist out of the Neighborhood in 1967;

By 1970, it was legal in NY to have an abortion and it was an Assemblyman named Michaels in Buffalo, NY who was Catholic, who pushed the Bill through;

I haven't forgotten that;

Pax Vobis, Anita
