Cell Phone Sequel
Talk shows: Judging by the letter writer's response to cell phone usage, I'm guessing that she's not wasting her time in any kind of self-improvement classes [Letters, "From Walls to Calls," December 7].
You go, girl. Keep talking on that cell phone wherever you want. Yeah, me too. I say, "Fuck 'em." How asinine. I'm sure she believes that unlimited cell phone usage ranks right up there with breast-feeding in public and urinating on car tires as a God-given right. Please don't tell me she's doing anything beneficial to the public well-being, like teaching preschool children. May your dentist have the same attitude at your next exam. And your doctor, peace officer responding to a call at your house, fireman en route to your burning trailer, etc., etc.

Bladder blabber: (Regarding the cell phone letter) I urinate all the time. I urinate at the grocery store, the library (very subdued there, though) and anywhere else I feel like it. If someone does not like my urinating on my time, then fuck 'em.
Insider extraordinaire: Tim Fleck is my hero.
I wanna be just like him when I grow up. I love that he is not impressed by the rank or stature of the people who find their way into his Insider column. Usually they are self-serving and hypocritical folks who tend to judge and condemn others without regard to the damage they inflict. It's good to see them called on the carpet for a change.
My week would be much gloomier without a good dose of Fleck.
