Yesterday in the crowded doctor’s waiting room, I looked around and discovered that Patty and I were the only people there not peering into a hand-held electronic device. Literally everybody else was.
Worse, I had brought along a legal pad and ballpoint pen so I could work on my Newswithviews column. I could hardly be more out of step if I’d showed up in doublet and hose with a line of Shakespearean puns.
No one was talking. No one was reading any printed matter. Just all peering intently at these tiny screens.
Made me feel kind of funny, I must admit.
But not funny enough to join in.
