Jump Start (6/15/10)

Is there anything that divides us more than texting? The question might sound facetious, but think of the huge gaps in our attitudes toward the thumb-busting practice. A lot of older Americans have never texted and don’t see any reason to start now. Teenagers, on the other hand, text dozens (or even hundreds) of times a day. And then there are those of us in the middle who send sporadic messages to iron out middling details (skim milk or 2%). But what if we changed the content of our texts from pedestrian to poetic? I’d like to think people of all ages could embrace the occasional haiku darting lyrically across their smartphone screen.
