This, On the Other Hand, Makes Me Want to Smile

This business of "homemaking" is one which engages the attention of many million women in the United States. Yet it is only at the time of the present census-taking that the lawmakers have come to acknowledge it, and have consented to list every housewife as "homemaker" instead of "unemployed." This is real progress.

We've come a long way, Jessie. We've come so far, you probably wouldn't even recognize us.

That's right. I've returned from the Palmer Home Thrift Store with some $1.00 books.
