"You Said It?" Really?

A recent “You Said It” decried self check outs at Walmart. They took away jobs from human beings. Yes, all automation takes away jobs from humans; however, new technology ostensibly leads the way to increased jobs in other fields.

We’ve always been bemused by those who want to go backward in time instead of forward. How would it be if all washing machines were outlawed?
