SMS in the News

tvHere is a collection of news stories I’ve found over the years about SMS. Some are good, some are excellent. I urge you to take a few minute to watch and read them. Also note some of the commenters; particularly the ones who claim SMS is “cured” via “better parenting” or “a good pastor.” SMS is hard enough to deal with on a daily basis, but we parents have to put up with idiots like that all the time too.

If you’ve only 2 minutes right now, view this slide show of “Life with SMS.” It’s beautiful and really nails it.

So, take off your pants like Damian here watching TV, and click on the below. All the world could stand to be more like Damian sometimes.
