Dick Cheney Doesn’t Do WiFi

The Smoking Gun has an entertaining catch: Vice president Dick Cheney’s hotel “rider”. It is the list of things, a la your average celeb, that must be in his hotel room. While the list is fairly comprehensive, including all TVs tuned to Fox News (natch), and 4 cans of Diet Sprite, there’s nothing on the list matching my main hotel rider item: broadband Internet access, wireless or otherwise.

When Internet access becomes part of vice presidential hotel riders — and it will — then we’ll really know that the web has penetrated ever nook and cranny of modern life.

    Of course, like oxygen, when it has penetrated every nook and cranny it won’t need to be on any list. So let’s hope it doesn’t ever make the list.

  2. Right, good point. Let me put it differently then: When it shows up on vice-presidential riders then we’ll know it’s finally safe as houses, and just as necessary.

    We know that where the VP goes, so goes people from what used to be – and may still be called – White House Communications Agency (WHCA). Their purpose of course is to keep the VP in touch with the government. I wonder if they don’t provision data com along with voice.

    But really, do you still travel without a directional wifi antenna in your kit?
