The Sound of Silence
Riding to work today I noticed an odd phenomenon. People don't speak anymore. It has become impolite to converse in public. Brought on no doubt by the advent of the digital communication age, we are loath to waste our breath when we can utilize invisible airwaves. Will this affect our physical capacity to engage in speech? Will we evolve away from verbal communication as a species?
