War on driving while texting (texting while driving?)

This is one of those things like they say about the weather, "everyone complains about it, but no one ever does anything about it." Well, looks like the powers that be are finally doing something about it. Laws being proposed and enacted, which helps, but you always see those folks still proudly phone chatting or texting while driving. Finally, OPRAH has gotten on the big bandwagon. Queen Oprah had a very informative and VERY SCARY show about texting and chatting while driving a week ago, including gruesome photos of horrible wrecks, and testimonials by texters that caused mayhem and death. Seems that texting while driving is the equivalent of .20 DUI, or 4 drinks in one hour. . . . emails are pouring in to her from those who saw the show vowing never to combine the two again. Holly Peete (actress) and daughter came up with a bumper sticker "Honk if you love Jesus. Text if you want to meet him." How about "Dying to Text? Don't take me with you." Oprah has great power. Let's hope it helps. If you are one of "them" how about taking the vow?
Little town of Washington has been without power since the storm hit, 6 days now. Whew, I though 24 hours was tough. I guess that's how it is when you live at "the end of the line." Pray for them. How many showers will be taken in the first 10 minutes of power back on????
So many great movies, so little time. I can't remember this many interesting movies out at once.
When will CrazyHeart with Jeff Bridges be shown here? Now that it got the Golden Globe and the Oscar nod, can't we see it?????
