Re: “High speed texter not very excited

mm -
Well put - they (the driving folks, who text message at the same time) are endangering our lives, to be certain, and it is totally frustrating to be out and about on the road - when someone nearly t-bones you, while text messaging (this happened to me, two months ago...!). Ericloz, our state government can't handle the correct appropriations of the 'bailout' that SC received... our public educational system here is still abysmally screwed, and our state and local infrastructures also suffer (call 911 on James Island - you'll see what I mean... hurry up, and wait!). Everyone talks about state's rights versus the Fed here in SC, but it is really about time for this fair state to join the rest of civilization, and address all of these polarizing issues that divide us. Be well, everyone.

Re: “High speed texter not very excited

As per Taustin's comments on home schooling, I think you misinterpreted my judgement. Home schooling is not a bad thing. My kids were home-schooled, for a brief period, and my daughter even finished her high school education, with honors, online (over one year early, in fact, and she had been a student at Charleston School of The Arts, with a 3.89 GPA). All that I was trying to explain is that more social isolation, whether it be from technology, or other choices, is creating a generation of people who won't know true social interaction, as I remember it, being close to 50 years of age. The idea of school recess comes to mind (kids yelling 'COOTIES', and running away), and of course, there are bad memories for many who dealt with the school bullies, as well, so, home schooling may be an attractive option for some people. Home schooled kids are not Neanderthals. I never wrote that. However, just like back in the 1980s, when parents of that time started over-protecting their kids from electrical outlets, staircases and the like, I believe that the kids of the PlayStation generation, and beyond, will not know what the real boundaries in life are, due to being isolated, over-protected, and home-schooled - not to mention being incorrectly diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, due to what present-day life, and the technologies, are offering our society - in other words, being over-stimulated, and desensitized, simultaneously. It is all about being responsible, and accountable for one's actions - which, I'm sad to say, even home schooling will not help, with that - you can't learn about life, unless you live it - around others, however imperfectly. That is my point, people. Text messaging while driving, is merely one of the plethora of society's problems in the early 21st century. Family, community, and ultimately our body public - carries the lion's share of blame - for all of our present problems. We need to communicate, and to start loving one another, as in generations past.

Re: “Teenage iPod rocker likes the hot box

The same people who 'showed their concern' for your son's safety are the ones that you see text messaging, surfing, or talking on their cell phones, while driving a car - it's a generational thing, okay? I'm old school, as I'm close to 50 years of age. I sat in many a hot car, growing up, while waiting for my parents to do something. With the windows rolled down - or door opened, of course. Anyone from Generation X, up to our current PlayStation generation, will do these things, like 'show their concern', as it were - because their generations were managed, not raised, by their parents - and they feel guilt about 'right and wrong', as they approach middle age, remembering their daycare upbringing. Our society has become this... go figure...
