Hard to believe it's been 47 years

A friend sent this to me. You may have already have seen this but I thought it was very telling considering when it was released.


Do you remember the famous ABC commentator Paul Harvey?
Millions of Americans listened to his programs which were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations.

When you listen to this, remember the commentary was broadcast 47 years ago on April 3, 1965.

It's short...less than three minutes.

A sad but true account of what passes for us each day now.

I am amazed at just how accurate he was to have so clearly described what is happening today.

I miss listening to Paul Harvey. I really enjoyed his commentary, even as a child.

That is scary accurate, I used to listen to him every day at noon in the seventies, I had a boss that would make everyone listen during lunch time, I was young and stupid, didn't pay much attention, man is dead on...

No your boss brainwashed you during lunch, and you bought it hook line and sinker.
