But in high school, they'd get their phones taken away

Today's Washington Post had a great headline on a great column about our members of Congress using Twitter during Obama's speech last night: A Tale of 140 Characters, Plus the Ones in Congress

A lot of times headlines that are puns or plays on words work only one way. (I've written my share of those). This one works both ways. (Messages on Twitter are limited to 140 characters.)

The whole story is funny too: "Lawmakers watched him with the dignity Americans have come to expect of their leaders: They whipped out their BlackBerrys and began sending text messages like high school kids bored in math class."
