Published Letter to the Salem News

Originally, I didn't think they were publishing this--it was almost 2 weeks ago.  What follows is an response to this editorial column in the Salem News by Jonathan Blodget, Distract Attorney for Essex County, published on October 11, 2012.


Blodgett's words about the perils of texting while driving are worth reading.  But I think most people will read them, say "that's right" and continue to condemn people who text behind the wheel, all the while texting when they drive--because they really know what they're doing. 

It's not that Blodgett's words are meaningless; but in and of themselves, they are irrelevant.  Yes, stop texting while driving is the goal--but what's a realistic route to that goal.

For the rest of the letter, click through to the Salem News.
