AT&T Upgrades To U-Verse Via My Yard


AT&T digs up my backyard to upgrade network to new U-Verse, their cable alternative. They can take the TV crap, just give me a faster DSL speed, which AT&T says they are also upgrading.

Meanwhile, they are digging inches from a gas line and a drain pipe is lying alone somewhere like a severed body part. They’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do.

Ignore The Sunday Paper


Atlanta’s The Sunday Paper has a cover story that, in the print edition at least, bizarrely claims that “moderates are tuning out the partisan cable news networks.” A quick check to the Tuesday June 3rd (the very last primary night) viewing stats shows anything but such a whoppingly off base and densely-presented claim.

Guess these things can happen when you have print-minded people attempting to report about the broadcast media. Come to think about it, I have never met a single print political reporter who ever watched ANY political broadcast news in any form or fashion on a regular basis. Mostly, printees are so disdainful of the broadcast medium they tend to brag, yes brag, about how they never, ever watch TV news. Nor am I the only one to notice this disdain.

Careful if you see a The Sunday Paper cover claiming low voter turnout in ‘08.
