Death of phonebooks

September 5, 2008


The new phone books arrived today, three of them in a plastic bag. I went into the area where I keep phonebooks, took out the old ones and noticed that they had never been used. I tossed the old ones and wondered how long it would take before phonebooks go the way of Sears and Roebuck catalogs.

Won’t phone books always be needed for adding height to chairs, for the toddlers?

Reminds me of some blashphemous wag (was it Lenny Bruce? Paul Krassner?) who once suggested that the motel-room Gideons-emplaced Bible likely often served as a convenient means of elevating parts of the body, rather than being read for solace and insight.
