“The little-known Envelope Manufacturers Association has been fighting proposals to mandate paperless statements. “There ought to be a choice,” says Maynard Benjamin, CEO of the group. “A large portion of people still do not have Internet service.”

Good grief. Is there a pro-paperless lobby to which we can contribute to counter this anti-digital rogue voice? Maybe instead of fighting to keep paper statements, constituents should be fighting to address digital divide issues and get affordable, high speed Internet access in all rural locations?
