Letter: The Magic Of The Internet

I see people walking around talking into their cell phone or texting. Kids cross the streets without looking at traffic.  Also, I see people talking on their cell phones while driving. This is very dangerous. Driving a car needs all one’s attention. The government should do more to punish violators. Being free does not mean being a fool. Personally, I only use the cell phone to make emergency phone calls. I never text anybody.

Of course, I am extremely addicted to Facebook. I love seeing pictures of my friends and family and all the fantastic videos. But real life is good, too, like taking a long walk, swimming, cooking a new food, playing with the dogs, planting flowers, and shopping at the mall. Then, there are the elderly and they say that they are too old to learn the computer. Well, one is never too old to learn anything. The computer is very easy to learn. Just a touch of a button and you are in a wonderful place called the Internet. There is so much to find. You can buy handmade things on Ebay at very low prices. You can buy anything on Amazon.com. If you are going on a trip, you can find all the information on the Web. The Internet is truly amazing, but it is not a replacement for real life. I also enjoy going to the mall, playing with my dogs, cooking a new food, going to the beach and pools, playing card with my friends. Life is good.

 book shops in Hicksville and around the country will hand out free comics on Oct. 25, to celebrate the second biggest free comic book event of the year—Halloween ComicFest. On Saturday, anyone who goes into a participating comic shop can choose from 19 free comics and participate in fun activities comic shops host for their customers to enjoy, while discovering new types of comics and the treasures found in store.

In Hicksville, both Game Master Games (954 S. Broadway) and Amok Time (108C New South Road) will be taking part in the Halloween ComicFest festivities. Game Master Games just recently started carrying comic books and this will be the store’s first comic book-related event. Coincidently, the event runs in the middle of an in-store gaming convention, and store owner Dave VanderWerf is looking forward to the increased exposure for the store.
