We noted almost immediately that 2016's output fell considerably, barely beating 2007's mere eight months of production. And 2017's item count is deceptively high because of 122 (to date) "75 Yrs. Ago At Sea" featurettes.
2010's excessive spew? Possibly state & local election something.
Easiest conclusion: I'm beyond dulled out by the blather. Think cornered animals are dangerous?
Wait until you see an animal bored beyond numb.
