Readers respond to recent columns looking at pros, cons of cell-phone use.

Five years ago — a lifetime in our high-tech world — one of my friends told me she was appalled at the idea of sending electronic mail instead of taking pen to paper or making a long-distance call. To her, the world of cell phones seemed equally dreadful. “You’ll never catch me with one of those,” she told me, “I promise.”

I think the best thing to do if a nearby neighbor is talking too loudly, is to turn to them, and pay close attention to the conversation! Really, show your interest in what they are saying--throw out your own comment or two, where appropriate! After all, THEY are the ones who've made this a "public" conversation! Join in!

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

I thought they requested you to TURN OFF cell phones on airplanes.

Yeah but not everyone does. I think that most cellphones have no signal up there anyway.
