With all the attention on the shooting in Wesley Chapel over texting in the theater, I was wondering whether we needed a societal Ten Commandments of texting.
Here for consideration is a start:
1. Thou shall not text in church. (You should be praying to your deity.)
2. Thou shall not text in bathrooms. (Need I explain this one?)
3. Thou shall not text while driving any vehicle.
4. Thou shall not text when attending any paid indoor show.
5. Thou shall not text when in a courtroom.
This is a start. We need to have some rules regarding this new technology, and although I think we can all agree the punishment need not be death, maybe we could establish a fine with the proceeds going to find a cure for cancer.
This is submitted to get society to start talking and get our lawmakers to address the issue. It’s open for debate.
