The more things change....

Sadly, this old quote feels rather timely again.

". . . that quaint period, the thirties, when the huge middle class of
America was matriculating in a school for the blind. Their eyes had
failed them, or they had failed their eyes, and so they were having
their fingers pressed forcibly down on the fiery Braille alphabet of a
dissolving economy."

--Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie (1945)
I wish I could write like that.
