I don't have a cell phone anymore. All I wanted was one that I could use for emergencies—you use the time, and then you buy more time, or throw it out and get a new one. However, it doesn't exist, at least not one that would let you go a whole year without having to buy more time; all of them, it seems so far, need you to buy more time at three months. So I said forget it.

It's just so embarrassing, though. Recently, I had to call my son from the airport, so I had to use the public pay phone. Gosh I felt like a miserable luddite!

Tonight Mark Fiore made me feel better.

I would post the relevant video, but for some reason this site doesn't accept the URL. Somebody should let me know what's wrong. In the meantime, try this:

Thom plus logo The United States needs to protect its domestic economy. We need to protect jobs in manufacturing. We need to rebuild manufacturing. But this needs to come from a comprehensive, coherent, multifaceted strategy that may well include tariffs.
