This doesn’t make sense to me — someone who believes the phone book should be all but banned — but The Norwich Bulletin reports that the Colchester Land Trust is accepting bids from printers for the production and publication of the 2012 edition of its local phone book.
Now I’ve seen what happens when the phone books are delivered nowdays and it’s not pretty. But I haven’t seen what happens when the local Colchester phone book is printed and delivered, so maybe I’m off base.
Still, since most businesses are online (and I would guess this is true in the smallish town of Colchester as much as it is true in any town), and since most people have a veritable phone book embedded in their pockets via their smart phones, Androids, iPhones, etc., wouldn’t it be an environmentally AND fiscally responsible idea to ask the citizens “Who wants a printed phone book?”
