Texting at the Table

It's the etiquette issue of the day, and it's not going anywhere: more and more of us are texting at the table. The phenomenon provoked media outlets to label the smart phone "our new cigarette" and fret that we are "texting our way to isolation." Eventually, the Emily Posts of tomorrow will adapt to it; our smart phones are too much a part of our daily lives to ban from tables we sit at for hours at a time. Will the iPhone position replace the bread plate? Don't look now, but it already has.
