Texting Law

Subject: Texting Law

Hello State Representative Cheatham,

I am writing to tell you that I support the Indiana legislation banning the use of cell phones while operating a motor vehicle.  I would also propose similar legislation banning the use of cell phones while intoxicated.  Or perhaps it is currently a law I am unaware of since you can't drink and drive, you can't drive and text, so by the transitive property you can't drink and text.  Please let me know the details.

I do have a few questions regarding this new texting law.  I agree that it is far too distracting for people to be trying to text on their phone while driving.  It is just far too difficult for people to do so while still concentrating on the road.  However, does this law ban sexting while driving?  It has been my experience that I can easily sext.  It is far less difficult to snap a quick picture than it is to type a series of letters.  I can't count the number of times in a week where I send a picture of my "junk" to friends, neighbors, Conor, etc.  I just want to make sure that I am able to sext while driving without violating this new law.

Please let me know if I am able to continue to sext while driving.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Sasha Kaun

ps.  I voted for you!

The new law prohibits sending messages while driving, whether texting or sexting.  You should be careful about sending inappropriate pictures of yourself over the net.  It may violate obscenity laws, which would get federal agents involved.  More importantly, these pictures can be circulated around the net and can never be removed.  Someday you may apply for a job and not be able to be hired because of your pictures showing up in your file.

Be careful.

Hearing Issue

My wife recently visited our family doctor to determine why her hearing has beginning to suffer.  He stated that her loss of hearing can be cured by hearing aids.  As much as my wife and I would like for her to have her hearing back, we are very concerned about this sort of treatment.  Where do these aids come from?  How are these sort of aids placed in the body?  I have read that aids is most often deadly around 10 years.  We are still debating whether it is worth it or not, but we are learning against this treatment.

Will the hearing aids stay contained within the ears or will is spread to the rest of the body?  If it just stays contained in the ears, is it fatal?  Will my wife lose her ears?

Please advise as to what would be the best option for my wife.  Perhaps we can set up an appointment.  I look forward to hearing from you.  I have heard you are most expert on this topic and know that you will be able to answer my questions.

Mr. Kaun,
Thank you for you email. 
Hearing aids are small electronic devices that are worn on or just slightly in the ear.  They are custom made and prescribed for each individual hearing loss.   They are worn only when awake and have no negative side effects.
Based on some of the comments in your email, I think you are confused and or misinformed about some things regarding hearing and hearing loss and hearing aids. 
I would be more than happy to meet with you and your wife in a consult to explain and and answer any questions that you have.
Hearing aids are wonderful devices for helping people hear and communicate better.
Please call my office for an appointment.  812 949 3272

Hello Alderman Ameya Pawar,

First of all, you are a great Alderman and American.  I voted for you once.

I wanted to see what will be done about Jack O'-Lanterns this Halloween.  Last year our neighborhood woke up one Saturday morning and all our pumpkins were destroyed.  I believe Billy Corgan was the culprit although justice was not served against him.  I do not believe this is the first time he has done this.  Can you assign police to keep a close eye on Mr. Corgan this Halloween?  My children were devastated last year and I do not want to experience that again.

Good Morning Sasha,

I will pass your kind words to the alderman.  The police will of course be out and about patrolling on Halloween, but their ability to stop any and all smashing of pumpkins is limited as it takes little time to throw a pumpkin on the ground and run.  If you want to preserve your pumpkins through the mischief of the weekend it may be a good idea to bring them inside at night.  I hope the pumpkins survive and that all have a happy Halloween.

Take Care,
