Typewriters, Baby, Typewriters!

Thomas Friedman at the International Herald Tribune:

Why would Republicans, the party of business, want to focus our country on breathing life into a 19th-century technology – fossil fuels – rather than giving birth to a 21st-century technology – renewable energy? As I have argued before, it reminds me of someone who, on the eve of the IT revolution – on the eve of PCs and the Internet – is pounding the table for America to make more IBM typewriters and carbon paper. “Typewriters, baby,¬†typewriters.”

And people buy this BS! Depressing.
