No question at all that things are better now, and it isn't close.
To start with we could talk about medicine, particularly anesthesia. Back "in the day" most people went to the hospital thinking there was a good chance they weren't going to go back home, and it was always painful.

If you can qualify for the best rates, you should think about paying it off 30 years from now.
