I have just read MP Cathy McLeod’s account of phasing out the mailing of government cheques and I don’t like it. You see, after age 80 we get confused easy. You say the cost to produce a cheque is 82 cents. Then I have to ask you; how much does it cost to produce and run a pre-election attack ad? Probably make a cheque look kind of insignificant. As for direct deposit saving a trip to the bank, heck, now you’re trying to make us lazy. Direct deposit safe and secure? I don’t think so. I don’t think my generation needs be targeted with this interruption. We were not raised on today’s gadget-thumping addiction.
