Do I need a landline? Do they still exist in Seattle?

After years of having just cell phones, I think it's time to go back to having a landline as well. In order of importance, this is why I would need one:
1. For my kids to use
2. In case an earthquake or other disaster knocks out cell service
3. For when I need to actually hear the person on the other end (cell reception is lousy in my house)
4. For my steam-powered Tivo to call the mothership
For all these qualities, especially #2, I think I need an old fashioned telephone. Is this right? If so, does anybody know of a phone company in the Seattle / North King County area that provides real, not VoIP phone service?
