phone reception as well as possibly wireless internet and digital radio signals. If feasible, the coverage may also be

rollout, with officials on both sides feeling compelled to pull The Fear card: "it could enable terrorists to set off
bombs remotely," cautioned transport spokesperson Roger Evans. All too true, but why stop there, really, when we could
just ban cellphones completely and truly sleep soundly at night?
