The Schlock of the New by Steven R. Boyett

I cam across a this post on the E-Reads blog. I think it's worth your time to go over and read the rest of it.

Dear Sirs:
As a hansom cab driver of long standing I am writing to voice my objection to opening our public roadways to motor vehicle carriages for hire. Not only will this action devastate a grand tradition, it will take food from the mouths of children, notably my own. The inferior training and professionalism of these opportunistic motor carriage drivers represents a danger to the largely uninformed public, and their presence flies in the face of the people’s stated preference — indeed, their fond affection — for the hansom cab. The horses themselves are entitled to work for their living, as they have for generations stretching back to the Garden.
Yours most humbly,

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
