Dumb things

I wake up listening to GPB radio. Georgia Public Broadcasting. This morning it was news. The first two things I heard were:

#1 Some part of our government is discussing the legalities of texting while driving. What a waste of time! Of course, you are not to do that. How can you do that and 'keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road' which is what I learned in driver's ed more than 40 years ago?! Why does our government have to waste time with that issue?

#2 Another announcement is that a certain college does not have to give some assessment test now which tests a student’s knowledge of basic skills (they said reading and writing). I thought college was for 'higher learning' and that a student would, of course, know how to read and write before applying to attend class!

Well, good morning and welcome to our mixed up world!
