The politeness of old has vanished. “They don’t make ’em like they used to.” And for the most part, things aren’t built to last.

Washington, DC: One of the most troubling aspects of the almost one-year-old Zimmer Persona Recall is the fact that Zimmer is the largest manufacturer and marketer of knee implants on the planet.
