The somewhat arch title of my remarks, which I'll explain later, came to me at the end of December, when all forms of the media were filled with references to the fast approaching turn of the calendar when we shall greet a twenty-first century and a third millennium. Whether it comes in with the year 2000, as popularly believed, or, more properly, the year 2001, it will be a time for reflection, for taking stock of ourselves and our world.

Section two would state "It shall be against the law to collect a debt from a farmer." In a similar vein one might state the iron rule of consumer law, namely "No right that has ever been granted to a consumer, however ill considered and unjustified, may thereafter be withdrawn."

As Jean [Braucher]' said, I have served on several committees in connection with the revisions of Articles 2, 2A, and 5. I am now on a committee of uncertain obligation that is going to review the NCCUSL draft of Article 2 for the American Law Institute.
