      The worst part is-- there's a whole generation that thinks this is completely normal. Will we have to eventually establish 'no media' zones in places like parks and restaurants? Would we dare?
      Can you imagine the American Pioneers going west and not even hearing from their families and friends for months or years? Well, at least they had each other.
      It's a good video... now  I'm signing off ... for awhile.

        You can't leave us! It's not that we actually want to change, we just want to recognize, out loud,  that it's wrong and bad... like smoking.

    Geez, I saw this post hours ago, and enjoyed and totally agreed with the link.

    Sorry to see no one has rewarded your effort with any responses.

    So here's mine. It seems like there is nothing to disagree with, and we all hate choir sessions. smile

      Aren't you sweet. It never bothers me if no one responds. I figure you set the boat in the water and if it floats, it floats.

      Yeah, I had the same reaction to the link... sad commentary, but true and we all know it. Now what?

        My favorite tactic is to actually call people that text me - instead of answering their texts. I hope forcing them to actually speak to someone pisses them off. I know it gives me a chuckle forcing them out of their comfort zone.

          They actually have voice to text programs, and programs that read texts.  Just think about that.  WITWCT?  (What Is The World Coming To?)

          That's hilarious. It is so nice to never have to talk to anyone. What a terrible thing that is.
