What this also proves, [i]is[\i] fuck all changes, old people being battered, corrupt government and drug abuse all still current issues. Intractable I suppose.

If you want to phone me, I'm happy to play Wichita Lineman on my Hammond organ for you?

O2 turned off the old Buzby paging network in 2005.
