glad it's not 1943

A friend of mine sent this little factoid to me and I forgot to put it up on February 7! It's too jarring to not post.

February 7, 1943: The government announced the start of shoe rationing, limiting consumers to buying three pairs per person for the remainder of the year.

Only three pairs of shoes? Oh my, I'm glad it's not 1943!
