The Reading Eagle strikes again! One of the best yet:
Being an elder member of the population, I find myself bemused by the changes in society today. People communicate with each other by using their thumbs instead of their mouths, sometimes when in the same house.
I place a phone call and am greeted by a robotic voice offering a menu of options instead of a human being. A menu used to be something handed to you in a restaurant.
Cars have become rolling phone booths occupied by drivers watching screens instead of the road.
Terminology also has changed. A cell was something inside a body or a room occupied by a prison inmate, not a communication device. “Gay” just meant happy. A “tweet” was a sound a bird made. “Going viral” usually meant a flu epidemic, not something spreading over a computer.
I know society evolves, but I sometimes wonder if this is really progress, and I yearn for simpler times.
His next letter will tackle horseless carriages, automated teller machines, and maybe finally bring up this nasty Prohibition.
The best comic you’ve never read. Get on board, ASAP.
