Letter: Metric champion


Regarding “metric confusion”

Tom Taylor writes that he was born before the metric system was invented! I moved to the Prescott area as the climate is so beneficial to us a bit older! That our climate is so good that we have someone here, born before the metric system was invented, is better than at first thought, given that Benjamin Franklin first recommended the metric system to us!

Further the metric system is not something Europeanized, though it first came from Europe, it’s now all over the world! We are the last holdouts! Not converting a couple of hundred years ago has hurt our business selling anything that has to be fixed with “American” tools only!
