The Week contest: Mob phone
This week's question: Old-school mafiosi are complaining that young mobsters are "soft" and issue threats and conduct other business by texting. "Everything is on the phones with them," said a former member of the Colombo crime family. If Hollywood were to make a movie about a crime clan riven by intergenerational tensions over smartphone use, what should it be titled?
