Don't Text and Drive

Texas linebacker Sergio Kindle received a concussion after running his car off the road and into an Austin, TX apartment building Monday. Wow, when are people going to learn that you should text if you are driving. This article reminded me of an accident I avoided just last week because a gentleman was more concerned with reading his bank statement or something than with keeping his vehicle in his own lane. I know I've been guilty of it too, so I'll say this: I'll give up reading and driving if everyone else will. I know it will be difficult, and I may have to start my own SDA group (Stupid Drivers Anonymous). But I'm willing to take an extra five or ten seconds from now on to pull over if I want to read something or check an appointment or billing statement.

Please, for the sake of the children, if you are going to read, don't drive.*

Paid for by no one because this blog is free and there are hardly any readers as it is. I mean, seriously, who's leg does a guy have to hump anyway to get more readers? Seth MacFarlane, please don't sue me for borrowing your line. Thank you.
