My DW and I watched the movie Picnic tonight for the first time in many years.

In the opening scenes the drifter played by William Holden approaches the a house looking to work for food. He's given breakfast on the spot. My wife said you'd never see that happen today. It thought, yeah, the old lady would shoot him at the edge of the lawn.

As I watched it hit me that Picnic is a time capsule of how conservatives like to think America once was and how they'd like it to be again.
