A Smart Mob of Suburban Parents

Nora was returning this evening from a three-day trip with her theater group. She called from the bus about 6:30 p.m., saying they’d be arriving at her school in 15 minutes. I timed it, drove over, and arrived at the appointed time at a dark and empty campus. Within five minutes, at least ten other cars had pulled up, followed shortly by the bus.

Another example of how cell phones change everything.
