a certain view of the world...

My friend Frank e-mails this:

I was in a French science museum and happened onto an exhibit of the Model T. The Engish translation of the exhibit comment was as follows:
"The automobile remained a craftsman-built luxury vehicle until 1908 when the America carmaker Henry Ford began manufacturing the very first mass-produced car, the T, thanks to the development of the production line. In the space of twenty years he sold 15 million of them, completely disrupting the American way of life in the process."
