“Committee hears of millions of e-mails trashed” in News and Observer.

Final paragraph

A public hearing on the issue of e-mail retention was scheduled for April 3 at 9:30 a.m. in the Administration Building on Jones Street in Raleigh. Franklin Freeman, Easley’s senior assistant for government affairs and hand-picked chairman of the committee, said that people who want to speak at the public hearing should not try to send him e-mail.

“I don’t even know how to cut a computer on,” Freeman said. “I do not communicate by e-mail. I’m still one of the old-fashioned folks who communicate by telephone or face to face.”
