I work at Muhlenberg College. For a couple years Jacy Good, who graduated in '08, worked in our Student Help Desk. When she graduated, we were of course happy, but selfishly lamenting the loss of a really great student worker, colleague, friend.
The evening Jacy graduated, after bidding her friends and fellow graduates a temporary farewell, she and her parents were driving home, perhaps a 45 minute drive.
Their car collided with another vehicle - its driver was using a phone while driving.
The accident killed both her parents. Jacy survived the crash, barely, and after many months has lost the use of her arm, and now walks with a permanent limp, and other complications.
She will appear on Oprah, at 4PM EST today along with other people who have been impacted by the thoughtless use of mobile devices. ( I can't believe I'm saying this ) So I hope you will take time to watch this Oprah segment.

Pieces of Jacy's PSA
You may think you are some how immune to the weirding ways of these mobile devices - or that your "way smarter than those other idiots" and that it doesn't impact your driving. But your wrong.
