And I believe the article mentioned she had pulled
over to make the call to WABC. If callers were
_totally_ prohibited from making cell phone calls
to talk radio stations while in their vehicle, you
would have a lot fewer calls on-air (unless they'd
choose to break the law in so doing...)

As Jay Severin puts it, "Marie is calling us
from the quaint village of 'Car'..." :)
