AMC should walk back walking back a texting-friendly auditorium

So, AMC said they were open to texting-friendly auditoriums for some movies. People reacted, they walked it back. Call me unsurprised.

They also made a mistake in doing this. They should go right ahead with it and let the idea sink or swim on its own merits, not on what people say about it.

Which is where we run into the tombstone shortage.
