"I’m seeing another myth fall neatly into place."

It’s called the “This is bad, but ten years ago was much worse.” It’s not being said out loud yet, but it’s whispered.

If I sound like I’m crazy because I think someone is coordinating this, remember Journolist. Of course someone is. A lot of someone’s. And it doesn’t need to be a central directive, just the human drive to make us look good to ourselves and a faulty memory.
