I told you so

There is little in life more satisfying than uttering the phrase, "I told you so"; in this case it is really more of, "we told you so."

It is vindicating to complain about something so consistently and vigorously, and then see that very thing go down in a blaze of ignominy. To read a top music executive say, "And you wonder why people don't buy CDs anymore," Rubin says. "One song is great and the other is. . . . " is just heart warming. No one buys or listens to new music because it is terrible, and has been so for a decade (after all, why would you pay for garbage like that?). I am excited to see someone conscience and focused on the problem.

Sam, have any thoughts on the matter?
