2. Reader Comment of the Day: "Oh Yeah Amber me too. The penny candies was awesome too. A 3 Musketeer was like a half pound to us. Every Kid starting at the 3d grade carried a pocket knife no biggie. Boy scout knives to carve wood and make sling shots. Yup bag of Malted Milk Balls,a new jack knife,a bottle of Yahoo and your good to go. Yup at 9 years old all us kids would get the Broadway Bus to Everett Station..To Charlestown Boys Club. We were all just 9 yrs old. Oh the bus ride was only 5 cents with a transferr for the train. But in a way I can see what Brenda is feeling. Its a Jungle out there. Or maybe its allways been and we didnt know it. With the Tele and the Computer and hearing all the harm done to kids Im glad mine are all grown up." Reader David Mokal, commenting on the article, "Please Don't Help My Kids."
