Politicians need longer attention spans; less video games
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – I don’t know if you’ve ever sat through a boring meeting. I have. I haven’t been bold enough to play a game on my phone during any of those meetings, but U.S. Senator John McCain did.
A photographer caught him playing poker on his phone during hearings on the situation in Syria.
This isn’t new. I’ve seen Illinois lawmakers playing games on their computers. The media are perched high above and behind them on a balcony looking down on legislators.
I don’t blame them. I think the problem we’re all bored too easily, and that’s a shame. There are plenty of problems that deserve our undivided attention.
I’m JBand that’s the way it oughta be.
