The Barometer wrote too quickly — here is another texting tragedy.
A former Boston College student who broker up with her boyfriend sent him 47,000 texts in a two-month period. Her boyfriend, who apparently tried to respond, bringing the total texts between the two to 75,337 for the two-month period. Her texts included expletives and suggestions that he kill himself. He begged her to stop texting him. She did not. Sadly, her boyfriend jumped to his death from the roof of a parking garage. She is charged with involuntary manslaughter. Oh, that texting. It has become a tool of destruction in so many ways.
