At our high school Harry Zass kept keeping books out too long so was mentioned over the PA. If it weren't for some spoil sport administrator his name would have been read at graduation.

Like the one where you get the name Mike Hunt on the class register and when the teacher calls the roll and no-one answers to Mike Hunt, she calls out, "Has anyone seen Mike Hunt?"

I see a new name on the roster Dick Hertz, Dick Hertz who's Dick Hertz?

If you're Dick Hertz please raise your hand.

Dick Hertz?

In high school there was a guy who's last name was Goodhead.

Yes, he got teased a lot.

I'm old enough that in high school I wouldn't have understood why.

Well, same here. Until one of my buddies explained it to me. But let's not go there.

My post was really about culture change. Technology and a general relaxation of former standards of propriety have made it impossible for adults to keep things secret that, a few decades ago, children weren't supposed to know. If we'd had the Web, it'd have been different. For a while in childhood, I wondered whether people had sex in their sleep, because the adults around me didn't seem to know anything about it.

In fairness, I'll add that a more mature perspective produced a realization that if you say too much about sex to children, you start to feel that you're molesting them. That probably helps to account for grownups' reticence as I remember it.

Remember visiting Blockbuster video stores? Now there is only one left, in Bend, Oregon after 2 stores in Alaska said they would close.

Blockbuster closed its last few hundred corporate-owned stores in 2013 but privately owned stores that license the Blockbuster brand, like the one in Oregon, have remained.

I remember going to Blockbuster, first for VHS or Beta tapes, then later for DVDs. I stopped going when Nexflix offered DVD rentals via the mail.

I also remember watching tv when there were no home recording devices, VHS or DVD. If you missed a favorite show you were out of luck. Maybe see it during the summer reruns if you were lucky.

old enough to remember my grandmother, who lived in the country, had a phone. It was such that it was called "party lines". You could pick up the phone an hear the conversations of your neighbor. There was usually 4 or 5 people who shared the same line....you could listen in on what was being said.

Come on, that's not old. I think of those devices as modern luxuries. People planned their evenings around the broadcast schedule. Some ate off TV trays (external link).

Remember not watching TV at all?

A party line was cheaper than a private line. Some households in the country didn't even have phones.

The first VHS home recorders became mass market around the mid to late 1970s. That's about 40 years ago, or more.
Depends on age. For some the pre-recording era was a long time ago.

I remember eating tv dinners when the tray was made out of aluminum (before micro-wave ovens). Now they are made from plastic.

I think I have always watched tv growing up. But my parents placed limits on tv watching. Me and my sisters could pick out a few of our favorite shows
to watch. But excessive tv watching or binging was not allowed. I've been a big book and magazine reader all my life.
