Oh, wow…I’ve got the keys to ChicagoBoyz. Can I get it started…ran rough for a minute, but now it seems to be turning over nicely. What to write about…perhaps a rant in the classic style.
DEAR CELL PHONE FANATICS
What exactly is it that you’re talking about that is so overwhelmingly important? It must be very important indeed..
*More important than the lane change you’re doing at 70 mph
*More important than the attractive person sitting across from you at the restaurant
*More important than showing common courtesy to the clerk in the checkout line
The thing is…you talk so loud, it’s hard to avoid overhearing your conversations..and they usually don’t sound all that important. It’s not usually about getting that corporate acquisition done, or even about picking up little Jimmy at school to take him to the dentist. An awful lot of it seems to be …talking for the sake of talking.
When the telegraph was first introduced, a journalist remarked:
“This extraordinary discovery leaves…no elsewhere…it is all here.”
If wired communications reduced the sense of elsewhere, does the abuse of wireless communications reduce the sense of the here and now?
