I don’t get political in this column, at least not very often. I try to keep it light and find fun things to write about. I concentrate my efforts in this column to that of support for our communities, but today, I have to say enough already.

My Difficulty with “Operator Error”

Body
There are times I’d describe myself as technologically challenged. The company that handles IT support for the agency where I work probably expresses it differently. I think they have labels for people like me. In fact, I’m sure they do. “Operator error” is a term I’ve heard before and it seems kinder and gentler than “stupid”. Fortunately, Marco, the owner of the company that handles our IT support has become a friend. We have lunch together at least once a month and talk about life. I always emerge from the experience grateful for the gift of his friendship.
