99-year-old poet falls in love with iPad

A You-Tube star lives only about five miles from me. Virginia Campbell lives in a retirement community. She got an English degree from Reed in the early 1930s, but glaucoma has made it very hard to read.

Now she’s got an iPad, and stars in a video that’s gone viral. The learning curve can’t be too steep, because she’s never even owned a computer before.

In my compromised 100th year,
That to read and to write
Are again within sight
Of this Apple iPad pioneer.
