"…I am not a nut or tripping or anything!"

I don’t want to be all “people of years past had different slang than us and it’s slightly amusing!” on you, but there were a couple of turns of phrases in this letter (from Batman #237, June 1971) that I enjoyed, so I thought I’d just show the whole thing:

But this letter also reminded me of the times when the publishers would, if not apologize, at least attempt to explain to (or warn!) their readerships about impending price increases. That there’s even space devoted to a dialogue about this between the readers and the editors on the letters pages is sort of…quaint, I guess. Well, letter pages in and of themselves probably seem sort of quaint, too, nowadays, what with all of you with the blogs and the message boards and the Twitters and the transistor radios.
