Word of the day kiddoes: Obsolescence.
It’s an exciting time to be alive when:
1) Your industry — journalism, papers specifically — is gasping for air, grasping at straws, etc.
2) Your society’s way of life is doomed. Cars: oil; planes: oil; food: oil, chemicals, unfair labor and trade; electricity: coal ...
3) I’m angry, outraged and determined at times (right now, for instance). In an hour, I’ll probably be content, driving 5 miles to get a cup of coffee. This is a problem.
