If only the media had as much contempt for lying, thieving, corrupt politicians as they do for sports stars who use steroids.

Some things are ageless

I can’t think of any other transportation device, and very few machines of any kind, that can still function as a profit making business tool nearly 80 years after they were designed.

Emphasis mine. John Moses Browning's M1911 is still out there, profitably if you will. But it wasn't designed by committee.

The humble can opener really needs updating to the XXI Century.
