Lowell doesn’t cotton to the Internet

By Robert David Sullivan

MassBeacon.com’s Conor discovers that the city of Lowell will provide you with statistics from last month’s election if you use this newfangled system of communication called the US Postal Service. And it costs only $16.50!

When I explained to the woman that every other city and town in the Commonwealth was happy to provide the information either by fax or email, and FOR FREE, she a) didn’t believe me, and b) hung up on me.

In retaliation, Conor has announced a “shunning” of Lowell on his site. Not that it will matter, since the city has apparently never heard of the Interwebs. (If Wang Laboratories didn’t invent it, it must not be important.)
