Torn from today's headlines!

Personal Love - Teenager's Rage (Mar-Apr 1959)

I wonder how carefully they vetted that newsprint? I could just see Sally obliviously wearing a jacket displaying the headlines "BRAVE ALABAMANS HALT DE-SEGREGATION", "COMMIES INFILTRATE DAIRY INDUSTRY" or "RELEASED ATOM CLOUD HARMLESS, SAYS OFFICIALS. MAY ACTUALLY CURE ILLNESS"or some other propagandistic horror common to the media. Imagine what a jacket like that would look like today.
  • "GULF OIL LEAK BENEFICIAL TO ENVIRONMENT, REVERSES GLOBAL WARMING"
  • "NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG, SAYS GOVERNMENT"
  • "JUSTIN BIEBER #1 ENTERTAINER ON EARTH"
Brrr...

From Personal Love #4 (Mar-Apr 1959).
