Re: Mobile Phones/Texting:

I read an interesting article in The Los Angeles Times today,
July 09, 2011 by writer Nina Metz.
Article is titled, "Texting is a silent intruder in theaters."

It's a good and informative article and to quote one thing she wrote, "Those little LED screens can break the spell in a darkened theater, and it doesn't matter that you're not making a sound. Anything intrusive is a noise and the light is intrusive."

She talks about the "compulsion" of people doing this, etc.

I wanted to mention this article to you because you did talk about texting at clubs, etc. The article primarily mentions theaters but mentions concerts as well where this is happening.

Oh by the way, I agree with what you had to say completely.

I hope you have a way to access this article in the Los Angeles Times, July 9, 2011. I get the paper delivered so not sure if the article is available online or not.
