Distressed

August 20, 1986

What's happening to our civilization? I am angry that no one does anything. Our society accepts everything and looks the other way. Or is it just that we don't care?

I was in a drugstore and a girl about 20 years of age was shopping wearing an abbreviated bikini. Everything was exposed. And she was walking around the store barefooted.

I was in a market and a young man was walking around smoking. No one said anything to him except me. I told him it was not allowed and a clerk from the store was standing there and never said a word. He ignored me and just kept smoking.

I was in another market and a man was shopping. He wore just a pair of shorts. His whole hairy, perspiring chest was there for all to see. Why do stores allow this? I find it so offensive. I wish something could be done about this. I am not alone. What we need are old-fashioned crusaders.
