Thread Name: Help: Little Boxes (Malvina Reynolds) ticky-tacky?
Subject: RE: Ticky-tacky
Malvina Reynold's song encapsulated for me, the suburban estates springing up in Britain in the 1960's and the attitudes of many who bought houses on these estates. Attitudes that were superbly sent up in the TV Series "The Likely Lads".
If SRS thinks his Texas houses are bad, you should see how they pack 'em in over here in the UK these days. And the houses are much smaller than they used to be.
