A lot older than that, I'm afraid. I saw it when I was in college in
Ann Arbor, so it must have been before 1966. Back in the days when
the price of admission was $0.90!

for everything keep going up and up and up. I wish I knew how and
where and when this vicious cycle got started and what, if anything,
could be done now to halt it. There seems to no longer be any 'middle
class' in the world; just extremely rich or extremely poor. No middle
ground. How can that be cured, or should it? PAT]
