There is probably no reason to block this merger as it would create what is clearly a massive market monopoly. AT&T and Time Warner own pretty much all the cables suitable for communication into people's houses in many areas.

Time Warner, which is what AT&T want to buy, own no cables. Time Warner Cable, which is now a separate company from Time Warner, own cables; they have already been bought by Charter Communications, who also own cables.

My Russian friends tell me they know nothing of such a tradition for marking Den' Rabotnikov Reklamy (the Day of the Advertising Workers). (No, I'm not making that up.)

And I somehow doubt that the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution is being celebrated with much fanfare in Russia, either.

Nice try, though. Quite inventive.

Laughs about death of Gadaffi.

I can't escape the nagging feeling that the same people who keep "complaining" about this are the same people who joked about something happening to Gaddafi before it ever happened (or would have, had they thought of it, which most of them likely didn't), and would laugh the loudest if something untoward happened to Clinton. These folks also seem to be the same ones who conveniently ignore the fact that Libyans were literally (not figuratively) dancing in the streets and whooping for joy when they heard he was dead.

For mine, it's certainly regrettable that Gaddafi didn't get his day in court, but Mme Karma does have a way of being a really nasty bitch sometimes.
