    It's great to know where the government's trying to take our economy. Note to self: stock up on paint.

    Noah: If I had to guess, it's because they're printing the original captions from the 40s, and updating the terminology so it doesn't say "blacks" or "negroes".

    I was interested by all the pictures from New Mexico. To be honest, it didn't really look all that different. I did have to wonder at what would inspire someone to pack up and move to Pie Town, though. That's really just smack in the middle of nowhere.

    Amazing photo set. America before obesity.

    I wonder what people 70 years in the future will think when looking back at snapshots (or YouTube videos) of today.

    "America before obesity."

    Yeah, because they couldn't afford food.

    For our poor today, calories are the cheapest form of pleasure available.
