  1. What I love about all these old articles is the sense of importance that is given towards one’s outward appearance. People on line at soup kitchens during the great depression wore a suit and hat.
    Telling you that you need to take 10 minutes to shave today seems like nonsense to most people; some shave in their cars on the way to the train station.
    And it shows.
