    I didn't post asking for some kind of school grade. That wasn't the point. If that is all you got out of it, then you missed the purpose.

    They died around the time people started ending sentences with prepositions ;)

    Grammar-Nazism aside, they never existed.

    More to the point, where have the people gone who held these values?

    I do find that a lot of folks on message boards are expressing the same feelings as you, BGG, but it almost seems that for every person who shares these values, there are two more who would rather make light of them and one who attacks them or dismisses them as extremism.

    I share your pain, bro. Excellent post.

    Ending sentences with smilies is not proper grammar either. If you want to take jabs at me, have at it. You might want to make sure you check yourself first next time.

    To state such never existed, is to read the post in absolutes. It wasn't presented in that manner. You missed the point of the post.

    You are stating a regret for a value that never existed except in our hopes and dreams as a people.

    And the hopes and dreams are still there, some good change has come in the last fifty years, but if you think we can alter fallible human nature, then your regret will extend to forever.

    What did I miss? Did the OP erase his original question?

    I think so. But I'm guessing it has to do with the longer nights we have now. I love the autumn, but I get bummed with the shorter daylight. So, that's what I get out of the title.
