    on the telephone.  Now, it's fire up the computer, wait for it to boot up, open up Bing and try to find your number, IF you can navigate through all the motherfucking ads everywhere.

    No thank you.  Give me a human who has ad-free access on THEIR computer, who can give me the number I want, not the one at the top of the list because they paid the most money to be there.

      as a switchboard information operator in Santa Monica.

      In 1966, there was no internet, just banks of thick phone books to frantically leaf thru as fast as we could.

      There were jobs for everyone who wanted one and even a full time menial job would pay for an apartment and groceries.

      Either we revert to a barter system or find a way to convince our government to implement a baseline income for everyone or our economy will crash- is crashing, slow motion but still crashing.

      People are desperate and no one in DC cares.
      How many pitchforks and torches will it take?
