Cell Phone Nation

So, the government is considering easing up on rules that require utilities to provide phone service (just like we have requirements for water and electricity).  I heard/read somewhere the other day that many kids today don’t even know the concept of “I’ll get it” when it comes to the phone.  Well, I’m old school damnit and going to keep my landline as long as its feasible.  I really like the idea that there’s a phone that belongs to the Greene family as a whole, rather than just Kim and I as individuals.  Apparently, we are a dying breed:

Landline use is down while wireless use is up.
