Cell Phone Curse

I often get asked what the keys are to a good blog. The way I see it, there are three:
If you can accomplish the above-list, I’d be willing to bet that you have a pretty good blog. So along those lines, I try to write posts that will not only attract readers, but will generate comments as well. Of course, some posts do better than others. And some really surprise me with how popular they turn out to be. “Date Night Disaster” was an example of the latter.
I wrote “Date Night Disaster” after I ended up missing more than half of a showing of the movie “Revolutionary Road” due to a domestic disturbance that occurred in our row (and the subsequent police investigation). I mean; this incident made the local police blotter and everything. Anyway, to this day, that is one of the most viewed posts I’ve ever had on this blog. Cleveland.com even picked it up and mentioned it.
Before I wrote that post I had a problem with people that text during movies. When I wrote that post I had a problem with people that text during movies. And I still have a problem with people that text during movies.
Anyway, speaking of cell phones, I was talking to my buddy and his father-in-law about cell phones and texting, and their implication on society. It’s sore topic for all of us. I’ve blogged about everything from cell phone use while driving to constant texting. They brought up another issue – the lack of social skills most school-age children have these days – because instead of talking to each other, they just text from across the building.
Anyway, going back to “Date Night Disaster” and the guy who was arrested – I called the local police department to follow-up. All charges were dropped.
Oh, to close the chapter on Leo and Kate, I rented “Revolutionary Road” tonight…
