2% of people -- across socio-economic class, meaning it isn't about
cost -- do not want a telephone in the home

having lived that way for many years, i can report that the pleasures
of it are quite real

Was it really just a joke? I'm not so sure dismissing it as that is 
appropriate. Sure it necessarily isn't a deep critique of the power

provocations basically reasonable.
