Some folks are wound way to tight! It's just a fun little piece of "movie history" to talk about for a minute and have fun with. I don't think it's gonna cause a "rash" of people being institutionalized over a film clip and talking about a cell phone. Of course it's not a cell phone. Everybody knows a "transistor radio" when they see one. By the way "live" I like your avatar. Where is the pic from?
