Three years ago my wife and our two granddaughters (the older one was 14) and I drove in our Malibu from Vancouver to south Texas. On the way we stopped in Shiprock, New Mexico because I had read a lot about it in Tony Hillerman novels. The older granddaughter (we were having cokes in a Burger King) said, “This town sucks. It has no wi-fi.” I concur with everything you have written in your essay. My take is that the most evil man of the 21st century was Steve Jobs. He has ruined it.
