On a crowded street, a majority of under-30 year olds seem to be carrying a smart phone in their hand (I guess taking it out of a purse or a pocket takes too long if you are going to promptly answer a text or email) as a fashion accessory.You don't hide a fashion accessory/status symbol. You have it out in the open, just like our generation's "designer jeans" and mania for gold chains.I suspect a different area of the brain is used during the very analog process of cursive writing and the digital process of keyboarding and this affects our thoughts.Look on the bright side. We geezers that used cursive writing for decades will soon have a "secret language" that we can use to communicate with, that is undecipherable to the kids.I don't see that much difference between kids now, and us, 40 years ago. There were things that didn't interest us, or we didn't understand then, that we have covered now. The difference is the 40 years of experience that informs our perception of everything around us.Steve
