I've been surprised, quite frankly, by some of your responses about the Pokemon Go craze.

Here's what you had to say: 

Darla first, "Although there are laws against being on your cell phones when driving, its only a matter of time til someone gets killed playing this crazy game."

Lisa likes it, "Why can't older people have fun too? Especially if they are doing it with their kids or grandkids."

Pamela in Del City, "People could do something more productive like volunteer at the Regional Food Bank or homeless shelter.."

Jinni writes, "It has got people out of the house....visiting many sites they have never been to before."

Wesley in Chandler, "But are they truly 'seeing' anything. I've watched people simply show up continuously look at the phone then without another look walk back to the car." 

Julie writes from Choctaw, "My younger son is into this. He went off walking and playing this game, it came a rain down pour. Our older son drove and found his younger brother a mile and a half away."

Amber in Midwest City, "It's been a blast playing with my kids."

And there were a lot of those like Nathalene, "My 2 grandsons came to visit me their grandma for 3 days. I drove them and they found Pokémon . It was good for them and me to spend this quality time together"

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's YOUR 2 Cents.
