    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    That menu is from 1960, if I'm reading the little numbers in the lower right hand corner correctly. Certainly those prices look comical today, but to give it some perspective, I'd ask what you (or your parents) had in income for 1960.

    Just what I was saying (I should have read ahead). I'd love to have my father's mortgage payment of $66.00 a month from the 1950's, but I don't know if I would want my parents' combined income at the time of about $5000 a year.

    A newspaper isn't much help, since the point was how much of someone's income it would take to buy sandwiches as those cheap diner prices. It's demonstrably from 1960, though, since that's when Casey Stengel turned 70.
