Of course, there is no such thing as a 2082 census, but that should
/could / may be the year that the 2010 census will be released to the
public. While I haven’t yet checked the website to see what the
qualifications are, I suppose they would be: poor handwriting, a set of
pens that are almost out of ink, and poor spilling. In this day of tight
$$$, it would probably be too much to expect that census takers would
use laptop computers, and the info downloaded into a giant digital
database. Of course, by 2082 there will probably be a whole new
technology, and a digital database will be looked on as primitive.
