From the Archives: I Love Computers

Okay, so I’ll admit it: Reading these old letters all day in the research for my new book makes me love word processing. I know it’s more fashionable to be a little nostalgic and faintly Luddish and etc.backwards ps writing

But look at the kooky permutations people used to resort to. In this excerpt, the letter writer wanted to add in a postscript. Instead of just moving his cursor and clicking, he had to cram in the PS upside down and backwards in between the lines of his original letter!

No thank you.
