Sign of the Times

Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pozgar, of Claysburg, Pa., was crowned LG National Texting champion on Saturday after she typed "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins" in 15 seconds.

"I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes," the teen said after winning her $25,000 prize from the electronics company LG.

Morgan defeated nearly 200 other competitors at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan to become East Coast champion and then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles.

She estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.

In case you can't do the math 8,000 text messages per month is like 1 every 5 minutes. I think this kid needs to read Laura's post on cell phones.

I added a new link to the Blogs I Read (on the right). Jack Way is a longtime friend to Ryan's family and has been through a lot in his life, but keeps an amazing positive attitude. His caring bridge site updates all of us on his recent cancer. Please be praying for him!
