I wanted to burst into tears. I remember fifteen cent ice-cream cones for God's sake! And I could fill up my car for $7.00, not $70.00.

I'll just sit in the corner and cry quietly.

This just makes me think of when I was a kid, paying a buck a comic and everyone in the world my parents age or older would look at my comics and say, "Back in my day, these things were just a dime!"

Then I would make some snide comment about riding dinosaurs fourteen miles to school in the snow, uphill both ways.

Ok, let's examine this.

At the time this was published, comics were going from 12 cents to 15 cents.

So let's compare:

Since that time, hot dogs have gone up from 25 cents to maybe 75 cents.

Sodas have gone up from 10 cents to maybe $1.00.

Meanwhile, comics have increased from 15 cents to $3 - $5!!!!

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

Interesting how it could take you twenty or thirty minutes to read many of those 12ยข comics...denser, more panels, more balloons, letters pages, house text pages like Bullpen Bulletins, even massively dense spreads of dozens of ads for various novelty projects...and it takes you about five minutes to read a contemporary $2.99 comic, with more and larger splash pages, decompressed and thinner text, no letters or text pages, and big picture ads.

Then again, I eat a hot dog a lot faster these days, too, I s'pose.
