The new ohone book came the other day. I think we will soon see the end of phone books. It weighs several pounds. It needs to be replaced yearly, and all that paper becomes sheer waste.
It is out of date as soon as it is printed because there are so many changes. Even the information operator uses a computer, not a phone book, to look up numbers.
I predict the end of the era of the phone book. It will go the way of the buggy whip, copper wire, typewriter, console radio, milk bottles, cracker barrels, citizen's band radios, automobile crank, pocket watch, film camera, newsreels and tavelogues, loge seating, and single screen movie theaters.
