Not always disposable

Dear Editor,

My iPhone died and as many of you know it’s my major methodof staying connected particularly when I travel. I have a friend Adam (whom Isuspect is more comfortable with technology than most people) who told menot to get a new one that he could fix mine for under twenty dollars. If itwere anyone else I’d have said no thank you, and to be honest I really didn’tthink he could pull it off.

The rats can run

Thanksto Bin Laden and his cohorts we now have immigration personnel who seem to beafflicted with paranoia as they suspect everyone may be a terrorist. Secretpolice who monitor our phones and computers and our dealings we have with thebanks. Police who conspire with businesses that offer grand prizes and when yougo to collect you are scrutinized and interrogated. Airport police, busmonitors, the list goes on and on.

Suspicious behavior

Well, well,well, did anyone win anything at the Chevy dealer last weekend, other than afree ride to the OCJ? Here’s what happened to me when I went to claim my bigprize. First they wanted to see my driver’s license to verify that I was theperson who was on the flier. Okay so far. Then the salesman walks over to thecopy machine and makes a couple copies of my license. I’m not positive, but I’msure he likely handed one copy to the guys in the office behind the one-waymirror window. Have any warrants the salesman asks? Nope I answer, not even aspeeding ticket. At this point I noticed a feller sitting 10 feet across fromme, straight faced with a look that he was ready to pounce if he got thesignal. After that I was asked where I worked, if I smoked, etc.
