Talking Back

I was quoted yesterday in a story in the local newspaper (the university sent out my name as an expert in the history of the space program). I immediately got an email from someone saying that he is an insurance agent and he knows from the experience sitting on his desk that lots of people are driving 20 year old cars. I suppose there have always been people who spent a lot of time writing letters to the editor, but it seems to me that for me (the person quoted, without my email address being given) to get an email the same day the article appeared shows that the public has a new sense of talking back to the media.
