Drop the phone--now | CNET

If dirty looks and frequent shushing aren't enough to get you to change your mobile phone habits, then welcome to St. Petersburg, Fla., where inconsiderate phone use will get you a shot of mace and a visit from Johnny Law.

Can we all say Huzzah! The only public place you're safe from the cell phone is in an airplane. Though, I've often thought that airplanes should have a "quiet cabin" like amtrak now has. Ban the screaming tots and people who sing along to their music. No movies in this cabin. Shut the shades and don't drool on the person next to you. It's not that I don't feel for the parents and kids, it's just that I also feel for myself.
