Ditto with salt.

BTW, I find this very similar trend in culture, too. For example, when I 
listen to comtemporary music, what I can see is that very few musicians 
could stand up to Bach, Mozart and other giants. Most of it seems to be 
kind of "flat". Seems like there is not only popular culture but a 
pop-cuisine, too. 

The fact that so many people choose pop (either by lack of free will, lack 
of better idea or by their living terms) does not make us all look very 
well, imho. Our future may be limited by this one thing alone, this going 
where the herd goes.
