Comments: What good is it?

You go, sister!

After packing a pager for 19 years plus Motorola radio too, I can fully sympathize with the futility of the Caller ID. Nothing is more infuriating than having an emergency and calling one of those canned answering machines so I do appreciate having a human at the other end. People don't think, when you call a crisis center for info you're tying up essential services. I've been known to put the phone on the counter so that the idiot can talk to the ether while we dealt with the crisis at hand. Caller ID is only good for screening your calls, the rest of the time it's a PITA.
