People Should Stop Being Dumb

As I turned back to MSNBC, they are talking to a mom who lost her admittedly, yet irrelevant to this story, attractive 17-year-old daughter in a crash because the other person was texting on their cell phone. All I have to say is: is it really that important? Is it so important to send that text message that you can't wait until you have stopped somewhere to send it? That you have to send it while driving? It's a fucking text message. You aren't saving the world by telling someone you're going to be back in 20 minutes or to meet them at the coffee shop or other locale. This girl shouldn't have lost her life in such a callous, reckless way.

If you want to talk on your cell phone, fine. But, texting: don't do it.
