Gone Are the Days

by Roger Pynn

Consumer trends are a strange force.  We’ve seen liquor consumption plummet as drinkers took to wine.  We’ve gone from watching “the three networks” to relationships with dozens of cable channels tailored to our specific interests.  And, of course, we throw away perfectly good clothes (or, hopefully donate them to charity) as fashions change like the seasons.

But this trend may be the one that historians talk about for generations.

Just as we’ve studied the Ice Age, the Industrial Age and the Space Age, this makes one wonder if there will one day be an age called The Uninformed Age.
