This is a cartoon for Messiah College's newspaper. We have a common chapel every Tuesday. This last Tuesday the speaker asked that we turn off our cell phones (and any other potential distraction). While I do not think it is polite to do work during chapel (which does happen, laptops, text books etc.) but I don't think that should be the focus. When students think that it is a waste of time they will not pay attention and this should be addressed. Speak (and get speakers) that can speak to students and they will listen.
This is the second of two cartoons submitted this week. One was rejected. You can see both at the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists website.
