Opening Arguments

Cut them off

Should teens be banned from using cell phones while driving? Of course -- do we really even need a debate?

But in light of California's potential ban on teens using the electronic devices while driving, is something similar on the horizon for Hoosiers?

Wagner's initial response was somewhat skeptical.

"You've got to remember," he said. "We live in Indiana. It's not going to happen here."

Troublemakers might want to point out that I have ridiculed driving-while-phoning bans as an example of nanny-state government. But there are plenty of examples of treating young people and adults differently with the law. Common sense suggests this should be one of them.

I hate to bring up the old "common sense" argument again, but how about if I raise my kids, and the rest of you stay the hell out of it?
