Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, It doesn't take a genius to know that a lot of things can go wrong when you choose to text and drive. Studies show that texting while driving leads to a 92 percent likelihood of you driving your convertible into a truck filled with horse manure.--- Also, impact risk is elevated to near 100 percent if you happen to be texting the phrase, "Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here?" Anything happening this weekend that's about as funny as a screen door on a battleship? - Biff Tannen, Downtown
