Roger Dale Loring of Gloucester, a former county school teacher and coach, has had his third book published.
“Listen Carefully as Our Menu Has Recently Changed” offers Loring’s baby boomer perspective on living in a millennial world, said a press release. In a series of humorous essays, he covers such topics as “customer service that forgoes person-to-person communication in favor of machine-to-person communication” and “getting no-pay and no-perks jobs at stores that rely on self-checkout.” He offers his views on issues as wide-ranging as the use of social media, modern art, keeping physically fit, the pressure from growing up in Iowa, television news coverage, and robocalls.
“Few stones are left unturned,” said the release.
Loring was born in the small town of Keokuk, Iowa. After graduating from the University of Iowa, he joined the Teacher Corps and came to Virginia in 1968. He has been here ever since.
