The Big Departure – more relevant

Jack Webb’s monologue in the 1967 Dragnet episode “The Big Departure” feels like it could have been made today.

Actually not entirely true. Some of the generational references are things that today’s generation has no clue about, such as the references to The Great Depression. So listening to this becomes a good perspective-giver, for more than its original reasons.

Some of the things people complain and get outraged about? It’s only enabled by the fact we have it so good.
