AGAINST THE POVERTY OF LANGUAGE AND THOUGHT: THESES ON THE CELL PHONE: ?$, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 4 pgs.

Numbered list of capsulated arguments either against the ubiquity of cell phones and their malicious effect on modern society. Speaking of the poverty of language (his being the case against text messages), some of this language is a little too much for me. Hyperbole is a good way to discredit, or at least distract from, your logic in political screeds: “Cellular technology is transforming man into a cyborg” made me reconsider every other drastic opening statement (most of which actually held up, though). Regardless, I am super down with this and now just want to do my own wingnut pamphlet. Not gonna give up my cell phone, but I do hear this person’s frustrations with our increasingly scary and alienating world and mostly think, “Yeah, makes sense.” –Dave Brainwreck (Jason Rodgers, PO Box 62, Lawrence, MA01842)
