Random Newfangled Idea

Deep thought.

Restaurants and coffee shops where cell phones and laptops are not allowed so that people can have old-fashioned conversations again, free from annoying ringtones and people yapping on their cell phones loud enough so that everyone within a mile radius can hear about mind-numbing minutiae. 

In fact, I would even support public humiliation for anyone defying the "no technology zone" in such an establishment.  Flogging? Check. Pelt with eggs? Double-check.

Leave the gadgets at the door or buy a round of coffees (and pastries) for everyone if your Lady Gaga ringtone goes off at a million decibels.

A girl can dream?

I'm all for that! Especially the cell phones.

I like this dream.

That would be sweet.

At least beat them with a wet noodle.
