Debate on Cell Phones- Ethos, Pathos, Logos

Article Title: Cell Phones! Helpful Handhelds, or Disrupting Device?

Ethos: "In my opinion I believe cell phones should be allowed, as long as people are responsible." 

Pathos: "Should cell phones be allowed in public places?"
"Some, like Bruce Newman; an editor for an AAA magazine, say cell phones pose too                                  much danger; especially on the roads."
"We all remember the tragic day, April 20th 1999, the awful Columbine High School Shooting. Two students opened fire on many innocent people that day. Frantic 911 calls were made. Dispatchers and parents were on the line with students using their cell phones to call out for help."(also logos)"
"Imagine the heart ache if you knew someone dear to you was in danger and you had no way to reach them."

Logos: "In a study published by the AEI-Brookings Joint Center, a team of researchers compared the effects of driving while talking on the phone and driving while drunk. They concluded that drivers that were using cell phones exhibited greater impairment that intoxicated drivers."
"With today's world evolving so fast, new dangers come as well."
