    When you were his age, they didn’t have dollars.

    Let’s bring this strip into the 21st century. Brutus, even though he looks 15 years older than my 48 years, is supposedly actually a year younger. When I was Wilberforce’s age, we were content with dollars. Wilberforce should be asking for twenty $1 bills!

    When you were his age, $1 was a day’s pay AND sufficed for the petrol to fill your gas-tank.

    It’s good to know that, as dim as Wilberforce has been portrayed in the past, at least he seems to have mastered his multiplication tables!

    in 1944 or 1945 Iwas making fifty cents an hour in a cannery. Both factory and field work. That was seasonal for most of us.

    A candy bar is more than a dollar now, I think.
