Middle and High school kids seem to be engaged in an arms race. Instead of missiles and nuclear warheads, this arms race involves ever more expensive and complex smart phones. It is driving their taxpayers (parents) into penury.
Yes, I am guilty. I admit to spoiling my yuppy-larvae. I promised Kubota that he would be the very first kid in the Middle school with an Eye-Phone 6.
And yet, I know in my heart that his joy will end even as he first holds it. The joy is in the yearning and reaching, not so much the grasping.
