Ban cell phones like smoking
To the editor:Recently there's been a lot of concern about cell phones and the high percentage of accidents because someone is using a cell phone.
I've finally convinced my children that cell phones are dangerous in any situation. We like to think we're in control, but truthfully we're not.
I'd like to see cell phones off in all public places, including buses. Smoking, at last, is not seen in public places. Quit insulting people, sometimes even guests you're dining with, by talking into a black box. Smoking is out, and cell phones, too.
