Old Fartism

Those Were the Days

“Unable to embrace change or face the future, they have opted instead to romanticize the past. After decades of this raging Old Fartism, newspapers no longer have any younger readers to speak of, nor does anybody in America under the age of 40 notice or care whats happening at the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, or the Washington Post.
—Jon Katz, media critic, Wired magazine, 1998
