I wasn't around in the fifties, but as a child in the sixties and seventies, I do remember some of these - especially Betty and Veronica. My dad was an avid collector and reader of the Archie comics. He still has boxes of the old ones somewhere in his house.
I'd like to think that "those were the good ole days." The truth is, these days will one day be the "good ole days." What are we doing to make them special memories?
