I looked around the restaurant. There were five tables,
counting mine, within sight. At every table (my table was the
exception), there was at least one person on a cell phone.
I thought as I surveyed the scene, 'Is this what we've come to?
Permanently tethered to an invisible electronic line? Are we so
caught up that we can't even eat without being involved with
some electronic device?'
What a shame. What have we succumbed to? Are we becoming like
the Star Trek Borg creatures? Creatures who cannot exist without
being electronically tied into the collective?
I was so disturbed by the thought that I just refused to witness
Someone has to take a stand!
So I closed up my notebook computer and walked out.
