To The Editor:

A sad day in Mudville indeed! Casey not only struck out, he was kicked off the team. Casey went all over town to apply for a job only to hear over and over he would have to go online to apply.

Casey is in his mid-50s, doesn’t own or even know how to operate a computer. He spoke with managers face to face, but the old paper trail for job application is history.

The Internet may be more convenient for some, but old guys like Casey are up a creek without a paddle. What if Casey isn’t comfortable putting his personal information online? Casey can use computers at the library, but conversations end when he leaves the library, no way to stay connected. A sad day in Mudville indeed! This tale is more fact than fiction!
