The author comments on the use of electronic medium by the society such as the Internet. He says he is not prepared to sound the death knell of print publications, and there are people in this world who believe very strongly that the day will come when all of the news and mental stimulation will come from desktops, laptops, and iPhones. He believes people still need newspapers and magazines. He adds that it is easier to leaf through "The New York Times" on the bus than it is to navigate the Times' Web site on the laptop.
