    “I gained a great deal of sympathy for folks who used to have to do old-time paper research. Can you imagine?”

    Thank you, Dave, for that wonderful laugh to start my day.

    It’s been the same, of course, in all disciplines. Writing a request, rummaging through your desk for a stamp, and posting it in the mail was a little work, but worse was hoping the recipient would pay attention to it.

    And think of the time not so long ago when there were no Xerox machines. Back then (which was in my professional lifetime) it was really a fond hope that someone would have a copy available to send you.

    These modern kids don’t realize how spoiled they are. (And don’t we all recall hearing that, too, when we were the kids just getting started?)
