While we're on the subject of movies...
(Why do they call 'em smart-phones, anyway? It's not because their users seem so smart, when they are smart-phoning!)
There's an article on the Deseret News website today, "What to do about protecting distracted pedestrians." It cites several examples of pedestrians who sustained serious injuries after walking over cliffs, into holes, etc., while staring at their phones. Emergency room visits by "distracted pedestrians" have quadrupled. "State and local officials are struggling to figure out how to respond, and in some cases asking how far government should go in trying to protect people from themselves."
Officials in the Salt Lake City area are concerned, because several people have recently walked right into the path of oncoming trains, while paying attention elsewhere.
Um... EXCUSE ME.
Why is it the government's job to protect people from themselves?
