The thing about e-mail is, you THINK you're going to be on the Information
Superhighway and get information [from] all over the world, but what you
actually GET is about 9,000 messages that say: "Are you really (your name)?"
And after a little bit of research, I am able to determine that I AM really
(my name), but deep down inside this is something I was already aware of.
In some ways I think I like the pathetic old U.S. Postal Service Superhighway
better. I rarely get letters asking if I am me.
