Made in America

On my kid's preschool channel that we watch in the morning, there was a little short on how crayons are made at the factory. It was pretty cool, except all the footage was done in about '73. Why would a channel that produces such slick educational blurbs, be using footage from the '70s. My first thought was that crayon making hasn't changed all that much in the last thiry years. It might not have, I don't know. But then I realized, there probably are no crayon factories in the US anymore. To show a crayon factory now would involve the armed gaurds forcing kids the same age as the kids watching to make crayons.

Probably oughta stick with the one from the '70s.
