The End Is Near! (At Least for the Phone Book)

In tonight’s In Print, I bring you this devastating news from

“California residents will no longer see residential phone books unceremoniously dumped on their driveways and porches. Regulators there have approved a request by Verizon (VZ) to end the practice.” Read the article here.

I’m not sure how I feel about the potential demise of the phone book.

But as long as we’re giving up important staples in our life, I have decided to give up drinking anything but water for the next 100 days. I am going to experiment and see how I feel.

I’m guessing I’ll be done with the experiment by Tuesday.
I wonder if they’d ever decide to bring the phone book back . . .

    I despise getting the phone book dropped on my porch. I pick it up and take it right to the recycling bin.
