    Apparently the exception has something to do with the cell phone not being tied to a line. Landlines, for example, are forbidden. I worked in a place with a large Amish community several years ago, and it was weird to see Amish-dressed kids in the stands at a basketball game...texting on their phones.

    The Amish community across the country is also very close-knit, and apparently when that Amish school shooting happened some years back, most of the Amish knew about it even before the news hit the wires. That cell-phone thing again.

    Bizarro moment: The last guy to see the Amish shooter before he went on the rampage is a construction builder, and I had to interview him for a story once. I didn't realize this until afterward, when I ran his name through Google and the story popped up.

    High school kids haven't joined the church, yet. They have a little more latitude when it comes to technology/machinery.
