    I was watching reruns of the old Gidget show with my son and he kept laughing at the telephone that Sally Field was talking on to her girl friend.

    He couldn't get his head around the dialing part, and when the Dennis the Menace show came on afterwards and the plot revolved around trouble on the party line I had to engage in an entire history of 20th communication technology for him to follow the show.

    There's anti-trust and then there's anti-trust.  Funny how we have to reinvent the wheel with these large interests generation after generation.
