The description of the photographs on the radio was, for the most part, better than the actual image.

It's quite touching that Ms. Keaton thinks that they were trying to "confirm their lives," BUT weren't they trying to confirm their businesses ? Businessmen trying gimmicks to make money, keep up with the business trends, etc. ?
She must be quite romantic about America during this period of time. Just as well, because she'll have half of older America right with her ! It's that time in our lives to be nostalgic, don't you think ? If not now - WHEN ?
