I remember when everyone turned to XPS in order to "save a tree" and help the ecology. I remember when everybody turned to polyunsaturated fat to save themselves from lard. I remember when we lowered the speed limits because we needed to conserve gasoline. I remember when leaders of government and industry said, "you cannot run our nation's economy on just consumerism." I remember when newspaper articles were edited for content and grammar. Alas, all those useless memories.
