From Norbert, 16 August 2008:

Your CB piece!

I was with you most of the way, because I too had a CB radio. But what you didn’t mention, or I didn’t see it, was the part about the “handles.” Remember — everyone had to have a handle. Some handles were serious like using real names like Bill or Monica or Hillary. Others were two-word pseudo-descriptive or pseudo-facetious like Muscle Man or Lover boy or Hot Shot. Some were and self deprecating like Flat Tire or Lonely Joe. Some, like mine, were baffling non sequiturs. Mine was Electric Spoon.

The repartee about my weird handle was about all I ever got out of CB radio. Is it still in use?
