Cell phone.

20. Do you think we should go to war with Iraq?
Yes. I'm behind President Bush, our government, and of course, all of the troops over there. I believe, at times like these, we need to stand behind our leadership and support them. I have a cousin and a couple good friends over there. I've been praying for them daily.
