IF ONLY THEY COULD TAX JUST THE SPAMMERS...

I thought you'd like to know that the Senate is about to vote on the Internet Tax Moratorium. As you probably know, the moratorium is a bill permanently ensuring that states may not tax American consumers access to the Internet. This bill makes the current ban on Internet taxes permanent. There has been some confusion with a recent email tax hoax. This tax isn't a hoax, it's real and will happen if it isn't stopped. There is an Action Center set up to fax or email Senators in support of the permanent ban. -- Thanks for passing this info. along, Mitch Arnowitz [email protected]

CELL-PHONE-IN-COFFIN-THEME APPEARED IN VISIONARY FRENCH FILM

...a very funny 1999 French film (yes, they can be funny, despite their fascination with Jerry Lewis movies) called La Bûche began with a scene in which a ringing cell phone at a funeral gets everyone digging their cell phones out until they all realize it's coming from the coffin. I remember laughing out loud when I saw, wondering how long it would be before it happened in real life. Now I know. Thanks for the link. -- Tim Dungan-Levant
