Cells on the Six? OY VEY!

I recently read an article online about how there will soon be cell phone service in the city subways. I just want to go out on a limb and say, this idea SUCKS. This may seem strange, but I really don’t like this idea.
Here’s why:
  1. It will take away one of the few remaining places that you don’t have to hear other people’s mind numbingly boring conversations; not to mention that insipid Nextel chirping sound.

  2. It will hinder conversation with traveling buddies. Sometimes conversation with a fellow passenger, whether they be a close friend, a complete stranger, or something in between are the best conversations of the day.     You can talk about your boss with a coworker or a test with a classmate face to face not over the airwaves.

  3. The subway used to be a sanctuary from annoying phone calls. When you were traveling from point to point you had an excuse for ignoring your cell. Also, you had an easy excuse to end a conversation, whether you were going underground or not…
…but alas. Times they are achangin’ and it would seem that there is nothing that can be done about it. For know however, I shall savor the sounds of silence punctuated only by the clickety-clack of the tracks and the bingbong of the closing doors as I make my way home…

If that wasnt bad enough, the subway used to be relatively safe from planted bombs because they could only then be triggered by timing devices or tripwores. Now a satchel can be placed days in advance and the cahrge can be detonated by a cell phone call that can now reach underground. Hows that for a little paranoia?
