Talk about missing the point....

There's a big panic amongst theater owners these days because of free-falling box office receipts. Apparently, for some unknown reason, people are attending movie theaters in less-than-staggering numbers these days. So, what is the proposed solution to this problem? Why, lobbying the FCC for permission to jam cell phones, of course, because the only reason people go to theaters is to escape their homes and watch a movie in a cellphone-free environment.

Naturally, the box office slump has absolutely nothing to do with, say, the garbage that gets put on the big screen these days. Just like it has absolutely nothing to do with exhorbitant ticket prices, and the requirement of having to sell one's children into slavery in order to afford a bucket of popcorn and a soda.

Nope. It's all because of the cellphones.
