Steve, I don't know if you were old enough to remember the sacrifices made by the American people during WWII, but the bread thing probably went unnoticed by the vast majority of Americans. Coming out of the depression was probably an easy transision for most Americans. I remember the rationing of sugar, coffee, tires, gasoline etc. In total is was difficult for all Americans but being the country that we were and to a degree, still are, was something that we had to do. The whole country fought that war.

Isn't it amazing that in 1939 we trained our military with broom handles substituting for rifles and Gen. Patton used his own money to buy gasoline for his tanks and other vehicles. Only in America. Then three years later, after we tooled up, we fought, we supplied all our Allies, and we did it on two fronts. What a country. Can you imagine France doing anything such as that???

any country could have done what the us of a did providing they had/have the natural resources, the industrial base, a unlimited supply of laborers, were isolated from destruction by two oceans and were eager to supply allies with armaments to hopefully escape the depression and escape going to war. can you imagine having to endure four years of nazi occupation as the french and many other european countries did?

In 1978, Johnny Paycheckýs immortal ode to workplace frustrations, "Take This Job and Shove It," shot to the top spot on the Billboard charts. Paycheck, who was born Donald Eugene Lytle, enjoyed a few booze-drenched honky-tonk hits during the 1960s. A little too fond of the bottle, Paycheck squandered his initial success and wound up performing on Skid Row in Los Angeles to earn money for drinks. But, by 1978, Paycheck had mustered up a comeback and was ruling the nationýs airwaves with "Take This Job." The song took on a life of its own and in 1981 was turned into a middling movie starring Robert Hays of Airplane! fame. The years, however, were not so kind to Paycheck. He lapsed into self-parody, churning out pale imitations of "Take This Job" in hopes of climbing back to the top of the charts. In 1989, Paycheck was sentenced to a two-year prison stint for shooting someone during a barroom fight.

I used to sing it every Monday :)

That's sad; He was a feisty, talented, musician.
However, no regrets sharing may favorite part of the lyrics with my old boss. He didn't like it much!

The X-ray machine is first exhibited in New York city. The X in the name is used because of the initial mystery of what type of ray it is.
