    That should be Cheney making that phone call.

  2. This phenomenon of moment-of-death calls really shakes me. Those voicemails people sent from the twin towers, to a lesser extent the Jet Blue passengers who watched their own emergency landing on tv while talking about it on their phones. I don’t know if I’d want to hear that call, or make it.

      Oh yes, always a grain of salt with dramatic stuff like that.
      I considered while reading it that it might be a conflation of some real incidents where people phoned in their doom, and stuff like the scene in /Three Kings/ where the guy is phoning home from Iraq after pawing through the pile of cellphones.

        but, yes, a grain of salt with anything you read in the “news”.
