    I disagree somewhat. With the advent of the Internet, and inexpensive, flat-rate cellular phone plans, I think people are communicating with one another more than ever. News spreads around the world within minutes. Folks in the US can play computer games in real time with people on the other side of the world, and vice versa. Perhaps the question is even though we are communicating, are we really listening?
