I’ll freely admit, today’s Startup is a bit weak. I seem to have come down with something evil and vicious like the Flu or the Bubonic Plague or something. So while I head for my couch and marvel at the fact that my forehead is hot enough to be used as a source of power, ponder this:
When was the last time you saw a phone booth? I was thinking about it the other day, and around here, they’re nowhere to be seen. I don’t remember ever hearing anything about them being removed, just suddenly they were gone… and with them, a piece of our modern western culture.
Think about it; if they make a new Superman movie, it’ll suck where is he supposed to get changed? Will they have to set the movie in an earlier time period just so phone booths are irrelevant? Maxwell Smart no longer has a secret entrance to CONTROL headquarters. The movie Phonebooth has slipped from cinematic brilliance to irrelevance!
Do we need to start a Save The Phone Booths campaign, or does anyone care in the slightest?
