Do you text and drive?

A new report shows that laws against texting while driving have had little effect. What about you? Do you text and drive?

Raise both of your hands, while you talk on the phone in one hand and text on the phone in the other hand, while you drive, if you think this is just another elitist scheme to control thought, and take away our basic freedoms!

Do I text while driving? R U kidding? Who has time? It takes all my concentration to AVOID those who do! Or who eat. Or put on eye makeup. Or READ, like the woman who was weaving down the road in front of me with a handful of papers in front of her face. Yikes! One more reason to take the train . . . oh, right, we don't have trains in the U.S. of A.

One wouldn't think people would even need to be told that it's a bad idea to read and write while careening down the highway at 70 MPH in a two ton killing machine propelled by exploding chemicals but then again one will never go broke betting on stupidity.

If it weren't for the innocent victims, I'd say let natural selection take its course.

Last year on 95 outside of Boston I saw a driver eating her cereal while driving at 60+ mph. That's right. Holding the bowl in one hand and a spoon in the other, trading off on whether the bowl or the spoon hand held the wheel.
