"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." - Innocents Abroad -- Mark Twain
"It liberates the vandal to travel--you never saw a bigoted, opinionated, stubborn, narrow-minded, self-conceited, almighty mean man in your life but he had stuck in one place since he was born and thought God made the world and dyspepsia and bile for his especial comfort and satisfaction." - The American Abroad speech, 1868 - Mark Twain
Travel has no longer any charm for me. I have seen all the foreign countries I want to except heaven & hell & I have only a vague curiosity about one of those. - Letter to W. D. Howells, 5/20/1891 - Mark Twain

Watch for the Koch Brother assholes to be pouring millions into local elections and read how you might help prevent more anti-American results from those dollars.
DEX doesn't know shit.
Lemme tell ya something, every time the van load of illegals that Dex hires to deliver their phone books rolls through the neighborhood I can guarantee you that they never have any OPT-OUT list to check before they toss their phone books, EVERYONE gets them.
I don't even have a phone line because I use my cell phone exclusively.
And, each time I find one of their damn phone directories on my porch I log on to their opt-out page and opt-out yet again.
Who the hell uses a phone directory anymore anyway???
Fuck Dex and the horse they rode in on. I gotta get the city to ban the delivery of these phone books entirely. Gonna start hounding the city about this first thing in the morning; sonsabitches @ Dex anyway.
Perhaps I will keep the directory that landed on my porch yesterday, and instead of spending time on trying to get the delivery of the directories banned in the city, I will instead dial up the advertisers who appear in the directory and explain to them that the directory serves as my way to eliminate vendors from any that I might be considering doing business with when I have a need. I also might mention to them that this is 2014 and no one is seeing their Ads in the directories so they may just as well mail me their monies than to pay for Ad space in a media that no ones uses anymore.
I am a backer. I support this effort. Maybe you should too.
