Cell Tower Paranoia

So many students have noticed what I've noticed on campus for the last month or so. If you try to make a call or use the web within about 100 yards of Occupy, your find your phone is dead.

Some people are saying this is just because a lot of people are using their phones in that area. Really? I don't see more than your average crowd there.

My wife used to work with cell phone companies, siting towers using GPS. She tells me that to take out the phone system in a very targeted way all you would have to do would be to disable a few towers. We should look into this.

Paranoia is one of my favorite emotions, mind you. I'm a bit of a Windom Earle: “Fear, my favorite psychological state!”
