70. How can a person who has no Computer "google it"????

We are NOT talking about a typical person on DU, someone who has some experience with government other then being arrested (and as such reluctant to call any law enforcement officer). If all the Great Aunt could afford was a bus, how could she afford a Computer? let alone internet access. If that was true of the bus the children were living in, how are the other families in the area? The School bus did have electricity and an air conditioner, but nothing more is mentioned and I doubt you had more. Abandon buses do NOT appear in suburban cul-de-sacs, but do appear in the boondocks.

Just pointing out that the idea that someone can "Google" something, implies that the person knows how to use a Computer and the Internet, something that is NOT universal and there are areas no one has access to a computer outside of the local School (And that may be limited). Maybe among the people you know, they can Google something, but that is asking more then many people can do.
