Heh. Mr. Kelley doesn't understate things one whit, based on my observations. After all, I AM an astute observer o' the human condition, based upon the many hours I spend on the verandah watching passers-by, beer in hand. Those people may be walking or driving but they all have one thing in common: that gotdamned cell phone either glued to their ear or in their hand while they text away. Just WHAT is so damned important that we cannot stand to be unconnected for even a minute?
One wonders how our parents managed to get through their days without cell phones, tablets, pee-sees, and the inter-tubes. What a miserable existence they must have had.
