I agree. My sentiments can be summed up with a scene from Wayne's World:
Garth: "We fear change." (robotic arm begins to writhe, Garth beats it with hammer)
I miss the old buzz, too. Time keeps marching, though, everything moves "forward"...I guess that's just the way. I usually try to not be the defender of the status quo, but this new buzz makes me a little dizzy.
The next posts will say how much better it is, all the new whistles and bells, someone will chime in about how the last time the format was updated everyone objected but grew to accept and even love it, etc. etc.
Whatever. World keeps turnin.
I hope in the future Americans are thought of as a warlike, vicious people, because I bet a lot of high schools would pick "Americans" as their mascot. -Jack Handy
