Maybe I have a dirty mind, but when I first saw this I thought "What the hell....?"

No, because it's 20 after midnight and that kid should be asleep.

Smoking in the presence of a child. Gasp!

Have you noticed that smoking has joined nudity, language and violence in movie warnings. Sheesh.

But that was the stereotype. A decade before, when Judy and whatshisname were climbing the novice ladder in 73, they were guided by "FN", a pipe-smoking oldtimer who had been in radio I think from the beginning, and had even been a telegrapher.

The series was written by Howard S. Pyle, who probably resembled "FN", and had a few books published about becoming a ham.

The kid's open mouth doesn't do the picture any favors, either.

I can see whats wrong! The man is smoking a pipe. That is horrible and obscene, and should not be allowed! :roll: . Amazon rated Dean Martin's Roasts PG-13, because of "Smoking and Violence". What is so violent about Dino's roasts, besides Gladys Ormphaby? :lol: :?

That's why he's using a code practice oscillator.

Maybe? ;-)

It was a much calmer and more innocent time. Except for all those war movies......

It's all in your mind. Nothing wrong with the cover photos, but some minds might need a good cleaning. :lol:
