Guardian Angels?

Interview with Dr. Harvey L. Slatin; December 11, 2002: Thomas: Do you want to tell us the story about what you were telling me yesterday? Harvey: Yeah. Uh… I first felt that I might have a guardian angel when I was taken to the Bassett Hospital for emergency surgery. The surgeries I’ve ever had before was I had two hernia repairs and I think I was 60 or 65 years old at that time and when I was 7 years old I went in and had my tonsils removed.

While the advantages of reporting your location to an emergency services dispatcher may be useful, if not life saving, the cell phone may in some instances, continue to broadcast your exact location at any time whether or not you are calling 911. Some phones, such as the one I currently own (through Verizon Wireless), allows the user to enable or disable the GPS location...
