letter to the editor:

Computers are a part of life

This is in response to Eleanor Matteson’s July 14 letter to the editor, “Not everyone likes using computers.”

As a member of the older generation (and at 77 years old, I’m a part of it, too), she may not like computers, but there is no product or service that doesn’t use and rely on computers somewhere in the manufacturing process. That includes the electricity she uses, the food she eats, the water she uses, her bank’s operations, her phone, etc. Even military actions by our armed forces are controlled by computers.

This is the 21st century and computers are part of our lives. If she doesn’t get used to computers, the world is going to pass her by.
