Ind. Gov't. - In electronic world, BMV branches no longer needed everywhere

This editorial today in the Evansville Courier& Press begins:

At a public hearing Thursday in Newburgh on Indiana's plans to close the state auto license branch there, a member of the audience asked how many there use the mail or the Internet to purchase their license tags. Those in the audience laughed and shook their heads. "I think that's what we call proof in the pudding," said Don Mottley, the Boonville resident who asked the question.

Hold your pudding, Mr. Mottley. As we see it, it's proof that those who use such modern conveniences as the mail or the Internet to do business with Bureau of Motor Vehicles were not there. They have moved on to other things, having left behind the inconvenience of driving to the license branch and then waiting in line to purchase their tag. They probably didn't care about the hearing or about preserving an operation that in its present state will soon be obsolete.
