Your pet can now own a cell phone -- what's the world coming to?

Ethicist Christine Rosen shares some similarities between the insane and cell-phone chatterers, journalist Clarke Cooper warns that cell phones are sapping our human essence, and Benjamen Walker talks to his cat while trying to explain how Foucault's theory of panopticism relates to our cell phones.
