There is no need to tell you that things are different today. Some things are better, but a host of things are worse. I think about changes I have witnessed in my lifetime and my thoughts invariably turn to that which guides my behavior today. So, what memories shall I resurrect today? Well today, I will focus on a time when men were gentlemen, back in the day.
When I shared my topic for today with a friend, he warned that I was traveling down a dangerous road. Many men today do not embrace catering to women as was the case in the past, he explained. Thus, I was told that I should expect some negative reactions as this is 2023 and not 1950 as the gentleman is a relic. But, as some of you know, we occasionally observe men being gentlemen in this day and age. Such was the case several weeks ago when an observation gave rise to this column.
