Russell Crowe incident brings renewed call for phone control
Phone-control activists march on Washington
One day after actor Russell Crowe hurled a telephone at a hotel desk clerk, cutting the man below the right eye, thousands of activists marched on Washington calling for Congress to adopt stricter phone-control measures.
Chanting "Hell, No Phone for Crowe," the protesters marched up and down in front of the Capitol in what organizers called the largest phone-control demonstration ever.
The phone-control movement, one of the most persistent and vocal lobbying groups in Washington, has long warned lawmakers about the dangers of easily available phones falling into the hands of volatile, babyish movie stars.
But the Crowe incident, which occurred early Monday morning in New York City, may be the catalyst the movement has been seeking to raise Congress' awareness about the need for phone control.
"What are they waiting for - for Russell Crowe to throw his cell phone at a flight attendant in first class when he doesn't get his martini fast enough?" said Bobbi Deetmer, one of the rally's organizers. "The time to act is now."
But even as the phone-control movement appears to be reaching critical mass, their opponents, the powerful phone rights lobby, is warning legislators not to demonize all phone owners because of the behavior of one hot-tempered Australian movie star.
Davis Brogan, a powerful pro-phone lobbyist in Washington, held a press conference to deliver what he called an important message to Congress: "The fact is, phones don't cut hotel desk clerks below the eye Russell Crowe cuts hotel desk clerks below the eye."
Elsewhere, the government reported that murder and violent crime are down everywhere except on TV.
