Steve Flowers' May 15 column on how the legislators and Gov. Kay Ivey handled the much-needed gas tax to be used for repair of our public roads was a must read. The internet access article was a different animal. Flowers stated, "This access to broadband today is as important as getting electricity was 60 to 75 years ago."

It is obvious that he did not live on a dirt road 73 years ago, when electricity had not come that way. In fact, our family had to move three miles to another dirt road to have access. Imagine what this 10-year-old boy thought when seeing one drop line in each room with one 30-watt bulb and only one wall plug in the house. Without that invention, where would your broadband access be?
