Alert — and squinty-eyed — “06880” reader Dick Lowenstein recently received the new AT&T “white pages” phone book. He writes:
Last year it covered Westport (including Weston) and Fairfield. This year, it adds Norwalk and Wilton in a book about the same number of pages.
How do they do it? Well, for one thing, the type size is 1-2 points smaller.
Of course, I can also use the internet. The trouble is that more of the so-called free sites are charging for phone numbers. Even the Westport Library reference department isn’t certain what sites are still really free.
Is using a phone book old-fashioned? What do your readers think?
Feel free to weigh in on this issue — though you’ll probably take this discussion in some other AT&T, free market economy, or what’s-wrong-with- education-today direction.
