Part of the phone book page is not there - what do you do? Head for a web-based option? The 'yellow pages' were considered a valuable source of information...similar to the encyclopedia - but with the ubiquitous digital world, their value has depreciated considerably!

It is interesting to note, though, that certain reading strategies could be utilized here to predict the remaining text (i.e., EME and SE in the lower right - Emergency Service) - do you see others? Just as important is the need to discover or validate information (i.e., FISHING TA is what? or is Nap part of Naples or something else?). We often start our day without complete information - what do you do to seek out and insure the accuracy of missing pieces? ... or do you? Interesting to ponder as we often expect our citizenry to have problem-solving skills and seek out something that is not there?! Naples, FL
