  • Greed, otherwise know as capitalism, went wrong. Now, I'm not saying capitalism itself is wrong, but seeking out the cheapest suppliers, just to make an extra buck at the expense of quality and service, is to blame. The railroads, for example, were sacrificed for the greed of the auto and oil cartels. It started as far back as the 1920s, when utility companies sent buses along the routes of trolleys to siphon off passengers, then bought out the defunct lines. Cars shrunk when oil prices spiked in the 70s; Datsun and the others were in the right place at the right time, even if their products seemed like tin cans. Saving a few pennies on an ignition switch, but causing injury or death, should be considered a crime. Now, food preferences change over time. I have an old neighborhood cookbook in which I couldn't find anything I would care to make. Perhaps it just took a while for neighborhood ethnic specialties to spread around, but they were there to be found if you were daring. I'm pleased to find there are more decent choices in London today - a place that seems perpetually 20 years out of date, despite having been the center of the world. In London, every bus stop has a countdown timer for the next arrival, even if you have to walk half a mile to get to the actual bus stop. In NYC, lotsa luck.
