Appearances Are Important

June 29, 2008

On Thursday evening, I had the opportunity to hear the Rev. Jesse Jackson speak at the home of Dan Edelman.

What’s wrong with this picture? Yes, I know it’s a little blurry. I took it extremely quickly. Look to the right side of the photo. Someone in the audience is texting while Rev. Jackson was speaking, or at least he gave the appearance of texting. His head remained down with thumbs on the keyboard for at least a minute. Yikes.

Note to self: If I have the urge to send a message to someone, step to the back and do it surreptitiously, rather than remaining in the front row. Or, simply wait until the speaker has finished.
