thought I'd share it with the tig.

HOMELESS GAIN NEW RESPECT THRU PHANTOM CELLPHONES
Los Angeles, June 2 - The world's homeless are finding
themselves the objects of a new respect from various
quarters as they appear to be talking into phantom cellular
telephones, when actually they are talking to themselves.
"The only difference between the homeless person talking to
himself and the typical cellular user on the street is the
frequency in use" says communications expert and science
authority Arthur Clarke. "One could easily promote a
talkative homeless person to the position of a top executive
with multiple tasks at hand." <etc.>
