Cone of Silence

The Hoover Library has installed a “Cone of Silence” for cell phone uses to have a brief telephone discussion without disturbing patrons. It’s about time we started using an invention like this for something besides beauty pageants during the final question to determine the winner and the runner-up.

Many of us will remember the days of the telephone booth, when there was always a priviate space available to make a call or even step in out of the rain. I’m glad to see new version of an old school item.

Next question: When can these be installed for home use?  I think the mom market is interested…
