Amish Newspaper To Go Online? NOT…


amish buggyHELLO GENTLE READERS,

I kid you not, an Amish newspaper, THE BUDGET, proposed to publish an Online addition. The writers, called Scribes, threatened to go on strike if  The Budget followed through on its plan. The Sugar Creek, Ohio paper does maintain a bare-bones website.

The  Amish, a religious sect of over 200,000 members have maintained a simple lifestyle among we English folks, shunning automobiles, buttons and hooking up to the electric grid.

Given their resistance to electrical devices, one wonders who’s dreamchild the Online proposal belongs to.
