The poor guy in Opus has died of an up-to-date ailment, a cutoff of input, electronically conveyed, to his brain starving him, of the constant stimulation of information needed in this day and age. It's funny I suppose, but isn't it a bit true. Yes even for me, as a member of the 'old generation'. I like a lot of those things mentioned in the litany of electronic toys that were shut off and caused his demise. Oh well, perhaps in the next panel, they could haul out the portable paddle machine and jolt him back to the living. I think they do have those now for home use. It's a wonderful age we live in, I certainly enjoy it.
