"Left unmentioned in their announcement was the fact that no one had requested a telegram be sent since some time in the mid 1970s, and the last person fluent in morse code died in 1988--a full 4 years after the second-to-last, meaning that, had anyone needed to send a telegram, no one could have read the messages he might have sent, anyway."
