He does not use computers. He hasn’t driven a car for more than 20 years. He has never flown in a plane. He has no television set. He has never had a credit card or a checking account; he pays cash for virtually every purchase. He has never sent an e-mail message; instead, he writes letters.
Be sure to watch the slide show.
