Reading While Driving, Seriously?

I gave up biking on the roads this summer for a good reason – too many knuckleheads texting, chatting, even reading, while driving. Reading a novel while driving? A complete aberration? Apparently not. Joining the genius above, we have the Portland, Oregon bus driver giving more thought to the Kindle than the road. And then this complete piece of work mindlessly moving from the traditional book, to the Kindle, then to the smartphone.
