cell phoe (ab)users

A new study has found no link between use of cell phones and the risk of developing a brain tumor. The study is published in the April 12 issue of Neurology, the scientific journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Re the above article, not to worry. Cell phone (ab)users do not have brains. They are unconscious, disrespectful, discourteous and obnoxious. Public transportation and areas; doctors’ offices; theaters; restaurants; checkout lines; in their own dream world walking in the street; and causing accidents when they “drive.” Name the place; they are there. Unable to bear silence or be with themselves for a moment. Totally oblivious to—and inconsiderate of—their neighbors.

And, now Disney is developing cell phones for kids. Great: just what is needed. Clones of the abusers.

Heaven help us when cell phones become as ubiquitous in airplanes as they are in those places where we are all held captive. These (ab)users ought to be relegated to—and locked in—their own soundproof area, obliged to listen to one another’s inanities. For the entire flight.

I, and hopefully those who share these feelings, will give our business to the airlines that have the sense to ban them.
