Photo of the day: Kickin’ It Old School

I’ve been riding Amtrak a lot lately, and I’ve seen a lot of businesspeople with their laptops and USB modems and BlackBerrys and bluetooth headsets. That has become the norm, even among the baby boomers. So much so that I had to do a double-take when I saw this sweet guy kickin’ it old school:

First I noticed his attaché case. Then his oversized calculator. Then his cufflinks and his bow tie. At first I thought he must be a professor — who else would be in this costume? But as I looked closer I saw that he was working on some financial documents, maybe tax forms.

I admired his style, and I quietly snapped a pic. In the always-connected, overwrought world we live in, it’s a breath of fresh air to see someone doing things the simple way… and probably getting it done a lot more peacefully.
