We're On A Roll

Saying that America is moving from a production type economy to s service oriented economy has always bothered me. To my way of thinking, it implies people with too much time on their hands coming up with ways to move money around. Sort of like Heinlein's (politically incorrect by modern standards) comment in The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress that "[we c]ould dump two Chinee down in one of our maria and they would get rich selling rocks to each other while raising twelve kids. Then a Hindu would sell retail stuff he got from them wholesale, below cost at fat profit."

To prove my contention, someone has now done an Internet survey of toilet paper roll holders. For that speciall accessory you absolutely, must have.
