Loud conversations don’t belong on ferries or planes
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced recently that the use of cell phones during flight is being considered. The best evidence of that being a really bad idea was noted by those of us on a 5 p.m. Fauntleroy boat last week.
A man boarded and seated himself up top, deciding to call a friend.
