A Minority of One

Paul was at the office when the first atomic bomb fell and when Muntz TVs replaced console radios and the first man landed on the moon. He saw the first big computers trucked in and locked in a top-secret room. Paul was an accountant for 50 years but the day came when he was told he was part of a reduction in force. Two guards carried his boxes out. They told Paul in the parking lot he was the only one reduced. Donal Mahoney
