Next election, I vote for banning the word change.

Alright, they'll get out their Roget's Thesaurus' and look up the snynonyms

Change is a double edged sword; nonetheless, it is inevitable be it for the best or worst. Let's hope for the best

A message I wish the food industry would hear. It seems like all my favorite foods are being tinkered with... and instead of becoming "new and improved" they're "different, probably not as good."

Some people's idea of "change for the better" is a scary thing.

What's better for one is not better for all.....like the CEO's of big companies

Sometimes change is good and it all happens by accident without any advance preparation or plan.
Occasionally change or the purpose of change is hidden and only the master planner(s) know.
People communicate change, set high expectations and inevitably let people down for not meeting the perceived value of the change.

I agree change has many faces
