    Of course, I've never been a fan of the current government, so that's that.

    Re: Should there be a ban on texting while driving??

    For those wanting to feed their inner nerd, from the Wiki on "Chaos Theory":

    The butterfly effect is a phrase that encapsulates the more technical notion of sensitive dependence on initial conditions in chaos theory. Small variations of the initial condition of a nonlinear dynamical system may produce large variations in the long term behavior of the system. So this is sometimes presented as esoteric behavior, but can be exhibited by very simple systems: for example, a ball placed at the crest of a hill might roll into any of several valleys depending on slight differences in initial position.
    The phrase refers to the idea that a butterfly's wings might create tiny changes in the atmosphere that ultimately cause a tornado to appear (or prevent a tornado from appearing). The flapping wing represents a small change in the initial condition of the system, which causes a chain of events leading to large-scale phenomena. Had the butterfly not flapped its wings, the trajectory of the system might have been vastly different.

    I don't care if they ban texting while driving or not because of the loophole.

    Let a cop pull me over for "texting" while driving and I'll see him in court. My defense will be that the law is against TEXTING while driving, not EMAILING while driving.

    So prove it. I have a BlackBerry™. Prove that I was texting and not emailing.

    Loopholes are great. And that's also why you have a really kick-azz attorney firm on retainer.

    and again, it is illegal to do ANYTHING that could be considered a distraction while driving.

    Sometimes I get a hanger that I can't quite reach. That can be very distracting sometimes.

    Which again is why you have a good attorney firm on retainer.

    What is a technical definition of "distraction"?

    Radio? People? Sunglasses?

    You know what's really distracting? When you get the Bojangles Cajun Biscuit Combo for breakfast. That biscuit falls apart all over the place. Crumbs dropping constantly.

    Re: Should there be a ban on texting while driving??

    I voted yes, I don't need someone rear-ending me at a stop light while texting. Its already illegal to hold the phone to you face and talk in some states, why not texting? I view that as even more distracting.
