No, I didn't miss that. You're not the first person around here to worry about buggy whip jobs being lost. At some point, jobs in both the public and private sector need to evolve away from obsolete tasks of the past toward useful tasks of the future.
If a private company wants to continue to employ buggy whip makers, I'm not going to complain as much because that's up to the owners of that company. When it happens in government, it becomes my (and every other citizen's) business.
