    a parent telling their teen "Either you start using your cell phone responsibly, or I'm taking it away. It's up to you."

    Which isn't what most of us had hoped for, but if it works at least for a little while it's better than nothing. Plus if (okay, when, who are we kidding?) they go back to abusing it, they've made their decision very clear: they're not responsible enough to have have it.

    On the whole, I prefer not to be lectured on patriotism by those who keep offshore maildrops in order to avoid paying their taxes. - Molly Ivins
