  1. Is that a “Redskin” on that poster? If it is, then I’m going to turn you in to the PC Police just for putting it up! (Sarcasm; but in reality it is getting that bad these days.)

  2. I hope not. According to the online Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index Inflation Calculator, $7.50 in 1956 is worth $65.58 USD in 2014. This seems like far too much for a Paper Mate ballpoint pen.
