It's bad enough having to listen to people's conversations at the doctor's office or in line at the grocery store or whatever. Do we really need to hear someone else's personal business? The best one yet was at the Minot post office once--a man came in talking at the top of his lungs on speaker phone. The rest of us were either grimacing or trying not to laugh.. I don't think people think a lot of times how much their voice carries. But I'd prefer not to have to sit on an airplane for a couple hours while my seat mate decides to talk non stop.

It's here! Look around and see how many are constantly texting or talking on their cell phomes or other 'smart' devices ~?~?

All of this discussion reminds me that ND is the safest place to live in USA, while I live in AZ,which ranks near the bottom as the safest place to live in USA. I was born in Wishek and am Proud. For my wife and I, we will choose to live in Bismarck, where we can stroll the streets speaking German. If we did that in AZ, we would not feel safe. Wir danken Ihnen sehr nett.

Good subject. A minot flight was once delayed some 30 min. for a minot "civic leader". Some people walk in the middle of an aisle, holding all others back. Some drive far under the speed limit and raise havoc with traffic. Too many r oblivious to those around them or think we all want to hear their conversations about nothing. This decision is easy--shut em up and save their nose from a deserved fist.

This newspaper is counted among those opposed to every idea -- unless it lines the pockets of businessmen.

"There's too much scrutiny!"
