Dear Click and Clack:

In the vein of your wonderful campaign to end cell phone use anddriving, I want to advocate a new direction: SKI NOW, TALK LATER!

It's now early season here in Colorado. I had the opportunity toventure to one of my favorite resorts, just after a nice dump ofpowder. While stopping for a moment on a good run, guess what: here comes a dude down the mountain...without poles...going WAYtoo fast...talking on a cell phone...and he wipes out a couple ofkids minding their own business.

Will this madness ever stop??? I always thought skiing was a fun sport, not a place to stage a hostile takeover.
