And expect everyone to do their part will never bring the metric system in or the mafia out. It's always powerful people with tons of money that change anything like it. When it appears that it is not so, you just missed someone controlling it from the shadows. Like sucessful revolutions always having help from some foreign country. Caring about politics, using linux and resisting the mafia only brings futile work and/or suffering for the small individual. You only have a right to vote because its cheaper to finance campaigns than financing revolutions or defending from them.

Where I live there is a serious problem with copper thieves, but the phone lines were never touched, I'm not sure why. Cell phones are seem as cheaper only because they can be pre-paid, so you can simply stop paying if you're short on money. But a land-line to land-line call is 1/20 the price of a cell call.

Great your ISP has a local office you can complain. Where I live (Brazil) all you have is a shitty 0800 that has no shame to hang up when you try to cancel their services or anything they don't like. (You have to sue to make some providers stop sending their bills and ruining your crediting when you stop paying here).

Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
