Who wears watches anymore?

I've recently noticed that cell phones are tunring us back into a society of people who use pocketwatches.

I actually think this is kind of cool.

Westboro Baptist Church protests a funeral in MD. I haven't heard anything on the local news about it. I don't know if people don't care, or if people are trying to not give them any press.

Saar and I drove by the church while the funeral was in progess, we did the the Guard, with US flags, standing in front of the doors.

I like how in the driving safer article they mention that we've accepted all sorts of regulations for air travel to make us "safer", so we should be amenable to the same sorts of things for car travel. I think they're just softening us up for the inevitable totalitarian state.
