This is a good column about the juvenile "selfie" trend -- taking your own photo with your cell phone, then posting it. It's bad enough when you're a kid, but worse when you are supposedly an adult (anyone remember Geraldo Rivera's "selfie"?)  To take photos of yourself while driving shows the same recklessness as texting while driving.
