... and she made her section last for days. She said people used to have money, but there were no things to spend it on. You just couldn't get ordinary things like specialty food, specialty clothes (jeans were $1000), cars (if you had money for one you got on a 10 year waiting list), etc. Now there are things, but the people don't have much money.

Outside that, La villenie did not win, David Oliver did, emotionally, whilst Ric******* hit the final hurdle to lose bronze. The pole produced a pb to take hammer gold while Johnson-Thompson pbed in the 200.
