Titanic Texter

Brad Cox of Clermont was surfing the Internet this week when he saw a story about a California girl who had sent and received 14,528 text messages on her cell phone in one month.

“I laughed and thought, ‘That’s nothing,’ ” Cox said.

Cox’s 14-year-old daughter, Emilee, hit 35,000 messages a month twice in the past year.

Her peak month was June, when she tallied 35,463 messages, or about 1,182 a day. Assuming she slept eight hours a day, that’s about 74 messages an hour, or roughly one coming or going each minute.

Separating the wheat from the chaff as we invest in our future

Thomas Frey: As we begin the process of thinking through the places where we can insert the electrodes and shock new life into the global economy, I would propose a new way of reviewing proposals, allowing the best of the best to rise to the top. I propose we only consider projects that can provide at least a 10X rate of return on our investment dollars.

As most taxpayers who are watching this process unfold, the idea of borrowing today against future revenue streams becomes a contentious issue with severe implications for almost everyone. If we invest the money poorly, there will be no revenue streams in the future to pay the money back, a scenario that will not end well.
