To the Editor:

On Page 4 of your May 19, 2010, issue, I couldn’t help but notice a student in the center of a photograph showing high school seniors raising their cellphones as they pledge not to text while driving. Am I mistaken, or is he texting? We can only hope that his promise to “just say no” will come while he is behind the wheel.
