I came to the United States, in the early sixties, from Germany.
My first visit, in the Los Angeles area, was to a Sears Roebuck where I watched the people leaving the store, loaded with packages.
Wow- America- how can people afford so much?
My partner told me that the nearby stand could give me a card-and I could get anything I needed.
I didn’t need anything- and quickly left the area. I just didn’t understand.
And today- as America is hurting so badly- I can’t help asking- “Are the good professor’s chickens finally coming home to roost?”
