There's really no other newer era to draw upon. The tiny bit of civilian Hal stuff in the beginning of Vol. 3? Geoff Johns having him be a hotshot pilot with a girlfriend who he forgot about for a few issues in Vol. 4, before losing interest in that?

You have to go way back.

Well here's the thing - Simon and Jessica were never that interesting to begin with. The diversity thing can only get you along so far, after a while the characters need to be compelling and the story more exciting than "generic space bad guy."
Continuing from there, there are simply too many human/Earth Lanterns. What are we at now? 7? It's just gotten watered down. It's time to phase Simon and Jessica out. The experiment didn't pan out. It happens. Let's move on.

These people don't know what the hell they are doing. It will be interesting to see what crappy ideas DC will come up with in the future. They are going down the drain.
