Texting while driving is dumb--and deadly

Dr. Frank Ryan Died After Tweeting About Dog: Heidi Montag's plastic surgeon was reportedly texting before his car plunged off a cliff on Monday

Perhaps because he was famous, Dr Ryan's death will cause some to pause before texting or tweeting during driving, and that will be part of his legacy. We all do stupid things in life. Fortunately we survive most of them. But even intelligent, talented people can do things that kill them. Don't let a tweet about your dog be your epitaph.

PS The dog did survive, with injuries. I guess that's good. Bur a man's life has ended, and that is unfortunate.
