Dan Rodricks' recent bus ride and his overheard conversation of guns in Baltimore is hardly a new discussion, and stemming the availability of guns to the wrong people is critical to Baltimore, no question ("Police making more arrests in gun-infested Baltimore," May 7).
But what about this "gravelly voiced guy with his cell phone on the bus?" On speaker no less! Aren't cell phones not to be used on buses?
Before big issues like guns can be controlled, let's start enforcing the little things like common courtesy. Someone should remind passengers not to use their cell phones unless they are texting only. Perhaps it's a start to restoring decency and sanity to our eroding civilization?
