Charles Hodges: One hang-up

April 9, 2014 

I don’t carry a cell phone and wonder how some people got along without them. I stop at a red light and look to my left and the driver is on the phone. Five out of 10 people who turn in front of me while I am waiting for the light to change are talking on cell phones. I go out to eat at a restaurant, and four people at the next table are all on phones. I even watch a ballgame on TV, and half the people in the stands are on phones.

What is so important to talk about?
