No Texting at the Table!

I remember laughing at the line admonishing "no texting at the table" in Anita Renfroe's wonderfully funny take on the William Tell Overture (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYukEAmoMCQ) and have, on occasion, been known to remind my own 11-year-old of our family's texting rules, but I never thought I'd see a NY Times article on this subject (but of course, today there was one: see http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/27/dining/27text.html). Coming on the heels of yesterday's piece about the perils of teen texting (see http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/26/health/26teen.html), this "too much time texting" thing is apparently become quite a phenomenon.
