    A 16-year old male driver was typing a text message into his phone when he almost rear-ended a motorcycle, veered off the right side of the road then hit a deer.

    A 16-year old girl fared little better, repeatedly crossing the center line on a two-lane road while typing her name into her phone’s keypad.

  • Reflections on the giving of thanks

    Dennis Prager, a well-known author and radio talk-show host, has written that gratitude is the key to happiness. Here is how he has put it:

    “There is a ‘secret to happiness’ and it is gratitude. All happy people are grateful, and ungrateful people cannot be happy. We tend to think that it is being unhappy that leads people to complain, but it is truer to say that it is complaining that leads to people becoming unhappy. Become grateful and you will become a much happier person.”
