An Open Letter To Arnold Zimmerman

To: Arnold Zimmerman
From: Me

Arnie! Do NOT do it!!!! If you take that step, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. I don’t care what else you have to cut, or do without.. just don’t do that. Please!

Okay .. so, what am I talking about? And, who is Arnold Zimmerman?

Arnold was the MITS (Journalistic term = “man in the street”) quoted in an alarming article I read. His line,
I didn’t think I would ever go back,” said Zimmerman, 66, of Davenport, Fla. “It was terrible. But with this economy, you got to look to cut wherever you can.”

The “cut” referred to is going back to (shudder) dial-up. The article, Cost-conscious consumers downgrade from cable Internet to dial-up.


Sorry. That’s what happens every time I think of that..



Wow. I gotta stop, and think about.. kittens.. or something.


That’s just too scary. But if you want to read more, the Boston Herald article is here.
