Once again, the first time I hear of someone remarkable is when I read their obituary.

Landliner Redux?

Screen Shot 2020-12-29 at 6.21.45 PM

I had my landline disconnected in the 1990s, as I recall, and since then have referred to peeps who still have one with some disdain as "landliners."

Well.

and extending to a number of states — following the bomb blast, I got to thinking that maybe, just maybe, I might be mightily relieved to have a landline not dependent on wireless signals or electricity (younger readers may not know that a wired phone works even if electrical power goes out).

Up top, the offerings in Podunkville.

I'm on it.
