oh no!
I've been reading articles about proposals (yes, proposals only) to 
make texting in the car illegal. I just shake my head and weep. Maybe 
it's an intentional Darwin effect? Who knows.

So the next time someone says that Australia lags behind the US, tell 
them to shut up.

I also think GPS systems are a distraction and should be banned from 
the front area of a car. (don't throw things at me)

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
