Imponderables

Apparently we don't just add words to our collective vocabulary, we also delete them. While I understand losing "mimeograph", I'm puzzled by "Nixonian". Doesn't anyone think that the release of Frost/Nixon might lead to a brief resurgance?

And what about we old fogies, who remember mimeo machines? Is there an Eternal Sunlight machine to wipe these words and memories from our brains?
