I admit to being worried... I'm relieved to read, courtesy of School Library Journal, that frequent texting (and is there any other kind?) does not lead to poor reading skills, awful spelling and grammar, and moral degeneracy. Well, not the first two, anyway!

Certainly my grasp of the general rules of spelling, grammar, and punctuation haven't lead to any facility with texting. My daughter cringes whenever she sees me hunched over my cell phone, tentatively tapping with one thumb, tip of tongue sticking out of the side of my mouth.
