Weapons of Mass Distraction

Nevermore!
Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849), The Raven (1845)

December 16, 2011 –The media this week carried stories about distractions caused by mobile devices for drivers, doctors,and politicians.

The National Highway Safety Board announced plans to ban smartphones for drivers, medical authorities said computer use among doctors and nurses potentially harms patients, and Herman Cain withdrew from the Republican race because of distractions caused by irresponsible bloggers.

In cars nevermore use of smart phones,
It turns drivers into distracted drones.

In operating suites, nevermore IT devices,
It causes surgeons to make wrong slices.

In the political arena nevermore blogging,
Partisan blogs cause needless pettifogging.

Multitasking is simply too distracting,
For tasks requiring one to be exacting.

The moral is:

Excessive use and abuse of mobile apps
Causes too many of us to lapse.


Tweet: Do not tweet while in the driver's seat.
