Why do you transmit such FUD without doing some research? Carter's 1975
initiative, purely voluntary act, was a failure. Reagan signed the Omnibus
Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988, which promised a more effective
program for metrification. However, we Americans are a stubborn bunch, and
we refuse to change to something in day-to-day use that works for us.
