Exceptions to rules

In response to letter writer Charlotte Baldizar’s letter about cell phones in theaters (“Theater Rudeness,” Feb. 1): Yes, people who use cell phones in a movie theater during the feature are quite rude. However, I feel, as a compassionate person, that there are exceptions to every rule. A father calling to check on his child who is with a babysitter would be one of these exceptions.

Those who have had small children know a parent’s trepidation when leaving them. Yes, parents can stay home, I suppose, but most parents welcome an afternoon or evening out, even if a little worry comes along with it.

I don’t feel (nor should anyone who has even an ounce of feeling) that a cell phone call to check on a child is punishable by murder.
