BEST EXAMPLE OF CELLPHONE-OBSESSED IDIOCY: Malcolm Smith
We hate people always playing with their stupid phones (on the subway, in the bar, and... well, that’s where we usually are). Malcolm Smith may go down in history as late-capitalist America’s biggest cellphone jerk: unable to take a meeting without checking his email (or playing solitaire?), Smith sent billionaire powerbroker Tom Golisano into a paroxysm, inspiring him to shut down Albany for weeks. Which sounds like goofy politics as usual, until you remember state government actually does things, like allocate money to organizations that desperately need it.
