Of course people also said that Television, comics and popular novels would all mean the end of civilisation and much the same was said about the introduction of the Waltz, dance in general, Elvis, Jazz and Rock Music, not to mention plays, films and videos and video games. They were probably right.
What will the New Year bring?
Here's hoping it's a happy one. Let's make it so. Ein Guter Rutsch! to my German friends.
