From Way Back When

Welcome to Shebang, a nice little town in the middle of the USA. The year is 1964, and the town is celebrating its centennial. You’re kind of isolated, but not in the middle of nowhere. There’s a big city a couple of hours drive from here. And your TV antennas can normally pick up three stations, though sometimes one of them doesn’t come in right if the weather is bad. You may not have a McDonald’s here, but Greg’s serves up the best shakes and chicken in the state, and their juke box always has the latest hits, so who really cares you don't have the trendiest food in the nation?

In short, you’d say the town is a pretty normal place. You’d say you’re pretty normal. And on the surface, everything looks really normal.

On the surface…
