Like everything else I think they started to get a little political, but they probably died because kids don't read comic books to much anymore.

You mean like riding bikes, playing baseball, football, basketball, hiking, eating green apples while sitting in the tree, picking wild blackberries, sleeping out, playing hide n seek, tag, building go-carts, ice skating on a frozen lake/river, doing chores before you could run off with your buddies, snowball fights, or just hanging out at a friends house, and a lot more I've probably forgot?

Yes I did, and yes we did, and growing up in different places didn't we do things that others couldn't, didn't, or never thought of?

Absolutely in grade school during recess. And did you know that the ball in a spray can are normally a green glass marble, sometimes blue, or a small steel ball?

In this country I highly doubt it Wil, why get dirty playing a game of marbles, when they can play video games on their cell phone and stay clean?

Only time I road the city bus was way back in the mid fifty's when I was just a young whipper-snapper. Always road a school bus to school, but then I didn't live in Elk-Snout CA.
