The Times They Aren’t A-Changin’

1020072_resize_resize.jpgLetters are so 1980. And why go about with your pockets stuffed with cash when you have ATMs at every treet corner? Guess what: it’s not only in the unconnected Third World that people still rely on quaint things like letters and paper money. Some Knights of the British Empire do, too. Macca a.k.a. Sir Paul— he cute Beatle, in case you’ve taken a cue from the Bat and have been living in a cave for an inordinately long time—recently said in a radio interview that he was an old-fashioned chap who liked writing letters ather than sending e-mails: e-mails are not “aesthetically pleasing.” He has his own point there, being as e is in the business of pleasing the senses of millions. The Horseless Knight has also revealed he does not se ATMs and do modern things like swipe cards. Reason: he is clueless when using them. He phones his office for money and sends an assistant running to the nearest ATM for that twenty-quid tip at the diner. Oh, to be rich and famous.
