Cartoonist’s Note: And so begins a new series of ideas, Telephones in Modern Life. They have their own Category. How can I neglect a chance to trash this iconic instrument most folks are slaves to?
For example: I saw a handsome, young couple eat at a very good restaurant. Wonderful food, a gorgeous afternoon, it was truly the beautiful people at leisure. However they pulled out phones and, instead of talking, or looking lovingly into each other’s eyes, they wasted their time playing games or texting friends. It was reality displaced by fantasy and commerce. Go figure.
