Telephonic Plague
A small village in Louisiana gets telephone service for the first time ever earlier this week.
"It wasn't 15 minutes after that phone was in before a telemarketer called me," Edwards said. "But that wasn't really a problem. I just told him I wasn't interested and hung up."
One thing that I particularly appreciate since I switched to VOIP service (from primus.ca) is that I have not received a single telemarketing call in 4 months. I'm sure this is mostly due to the fact that my new phone number is in a range that resembles cellular phones, but it is a nice, if unintended, side-effect.
