Taken at face value, it paints the guy as someone too immature, ADHD, or busy tweeting and playing candy crush to actually be social with a female human for a couple uninterrupted hours. If that's "fine enough" for you or his potential mates, I guess everything old farts say about the smartphone generation is true.

    i guess i'm just drawing a separation between "too immature... to actually be social with a female human for a couple uninterrupted hours" and choosing to be a casual weenie on the first date and give yourself an escape route from an encounter with a girl you met on the Internet.

    there's probably a strong overlap between dudes who are obsessed with smartphone dating apps and dudes who are too immature to sit still and talk to someone, but we don't have to paint with that broad brush. maybe Adam Diamond is a smartphone gash hound who is interested in scooping up casual tail, not romantic steak dinners. maybe he actually works long hours as a movie trailer editor (lol). i don't know what his motives are, but it just seems like everyone went from "doesn't like wasting time on bad first dates" to "nerd dressed like Edward Snowden dating on his phone sucks at life".

    Looks like a strappy dress to me, her hair isn't so bad, and I bet she'd rather be eating that salad at a nice restaurant, but I guess you have to go where the eligible movie trailer editors are.

    at a sox game last year, the late 40's guy in the row in front of me, who was there with his buddy and 2 young children, was leaned back in his seat not paying attention to the game and watching graphic porn on his phone.

    I think we're gonna be fine.

    The family of a 95-year-old man who died during a confrontation with Park Forest police is disputing the department's version of events and asking whether their relative was killed unnecessarily.

    Police say they tased John Wrana and fired beanbag rounds at him at a retirement home last Friday after he threatened staff and officers with a metal cane and 2-foot metal shoehorn, then grabbed a 12-inch knife. Wrana died hours later of internal bleeding caused by the shots.

    The heir to Royko and Greene has some commentary:
