ANDERSON COOPER ON NOISY MOVIE THEATERS

Well. this blog has admittedly given Anderson Cooper a hard time in the past -- what for standing in the rain all the time in all these different terrible storms and so on.

But in the past month he did a commentary on TV that I absolutely agree with. It was about this girl who got kicked out of the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Austin for texting, and all I have to say is, I absolutely agree with Anderson Cooper on this one. Texting in movie theaters is a distraction and takes away from the moviegoing experience of everyone else in the theater. Frankly, going to the movie theater is a miserable enough experience these days with all these distractions happening, such as people talking to each other in the theater right in the middle of the movie, and it's about time for people to put their foot down and say enough is enough.

If you're going to text, or use the cell phone or talk loudly or otherwise be disruptive in a theater, it just ruins it for everyone else. Leave the freaking theater! Here is Anderson's rant here. Way to go, Anderson.

I will have more to say about Anderson Cooper later regarding his new syndicated TV show, as well as other syndicated TV shows in the post-Oprah era. But that is all for the moment.
