Kevin passes on a story from cnn.com about a man, pissed about his cell phone service, starts throwing phones. He passed it on because he thought it was funny and knows how much I love Verizon. 1. This took place in North Dakota. 2. This guy was 22. So, I think this incident also serves to illustrate a couple more points. First, these states in the middle of the country continue to embarass us. Here and abroad. We need to stop giving them the chance to leave their home towns. Certainly need to stop handing them guns and asking them to protect anyone. Or, say, be guards at a prison somewhere. Secondly, imagine what it would have been like if this guy had been with evil Sprint PCS or worse-ranked (though maybe a little less evil?) T-Mobile? All cell phone services have the potential to suck. Sign the smallest contract possible the first time around, even if it costs more. But don't go throwing phones. Dumb*ss.
