    The first space shuttle launch was April 1981, not in 1984 as just stated on your program.

    Hey Don!

    Body sensing shirt? Remember the woman texting that fell into the mall fountain? Today I saw a combo of a body sensing shirt and anti-fountain fall-in technology. Six teenagers at my local Wal-Mart all had cell phones, and all were wearing green basketball team jerseys from their school. To my amazement, I noticed that whenever one of the kids texted, they would place their arm straight ahead onto the sholder of the kid ahead, who served as their point guard, the point guard never texting himself, but acting as their "designated driver." The kids texting totally depended on the point guard to steer their steps while they were texting-on-the-move and effectively blind to their suroundings They never paused walking even for a moment whild texting with their phones. At one point several were texting at once and holding onto their point man. From time to time they switched their point man, so the kid on point could have a chance to text as well. It was team work at its best, and totally collision, and even better, mall fountain proof. It was totally cool!!!

    I just wish I had a photo of it to send you.
