    (the good old days, remember?) there was no internet, no google, no atms, no cameras at atms, no security cameras in corner grocery stores, no credit cards or shoper loyalty cards.

    But everybody (yes, everybody) in your home town church gossipped about you. Everybody in the neighborhood knew about the teenaged girl who got pregnant and had to go away to give up her baby for adoption. There was McCarthyism, including books containing names of people who were blacklisted because they might be Communists.

    It's not so different.
