America texts while the world burns


Today's dots start here:

1) Egypt terminates gas deal with Israel.

2)100.000 girls are genitally mutliated in Britain.

3) And we text, saying, hearing nothing, incessantly. Sherry Turkle, the author of today's trenchant New York Times article about the texting habit, part emotional wasteland, part nervous tick. describes what the article's title describes as "the flight from conversation." The syndrome is also and above a manifestation of the flight from reality.

They all connect.
