JOY

Modern Technology

I used to be among the alert population of the world that worried the advent of the hands-free cell phone mic/earpieces would blur the line between the self-talking insane and the cell-talking sane. "It used to be so easy to tell the crazies...now, everyone looks like they're talking to themselves."

Sure, that's got the potential to be confusing, but today I realized the opposite is also true. Passing a local sermon-spouting nutjob on the street, I simply told myself "oh, he's talking on his cell phone about damnation. The guy on the line is clearly going to hell" and dismissed any pesky lingering thoughts I may have held about him.

As my mom often says "God Bless the inventor of the cell phone."
