Cellphone Epidemic Identified

There is something going on that I can’t explain.

I saw a number of people in the last few weeks, one was riding a bike and texting; another was jogging and talking on her cellphone; another young man on a skateboard going down hill and I think reading a text; another walking a dog across Broadway and talking on a cellphone; another at Saratoga Lake, a fishing pole in one hand and a cellphone in the other hand; plus a number of people sitting in their cars waiting for red lights and talking on their cellphones, the list goes on and on.

We must be having a medical epidemic. I think the medical profession should have a name for this: “cellphonitis.”

Who would ever think this would happen?

Oh, I forgot lots of folks, young and older, at restaurants texting and talking on their cellphones.

We have to make a change, like it or not. Enough said.
