Maybe it wasn't the Me Generation after all.

If we Google Ngram the word me, we see its occurrence takes a dive right around 1970. Intrigued, we press on to study trends for the word I.  Very interesting, we say to ourselves. Is this some kind of cover-up? The power and vanity of baby-boomers working to expunge their beloved me's and I's from Google records? Or perhaps we've excavated a truth via Google Ngrams. The truth that the Me Generation was falsely labeled! Behold, the evidence!
