Another disturbing trend has emerged over the last decade.

Used to be 10 to 15 years ago, if you missed shows due to weather or some other similar event, you would make up the business on the picture somewhere down the road.... in the end the total gross would be close to what you would have gotten without the interruption.

Not so today. We in the northeast lost a good bit of the president's day weekend to snow. And continuing the current trend it doesn't seem like we are going to make it up.
The only rationale explanation that I have is that people are so much busier today that when plans are interrupted they can't move something in the future (And after all, everyone thinks to themselves in the back of their brains.....Well I can always catch it on video later)

Absolutely. But that seems more the case in a season like this when films are slower than general. What film had a genuine buzz lately? I can't think of many. Once the studio built buss goes by the only thing to fill it it is silence or the new film studio buzz.
