Not many things have changed

Over at iO9, they have some great pictures entitled - Extraordinary Photos of Everyday Life in Oak Ridge, the Secret City during the Manhattan Project.

One of the pictures jumped out at me – of people lined up to get cigarettes.

It reminded me of my time in Saudi Arabia, Iraq & Kuwait – with soldiers lined up around the block to get into the PX….where one of the coveted items was a deck of smokes…regardless if you smoked or not.
