Get Thee Behind Me, Tree-Killer Phone Book Devils...

Photo and blog post by John Hoff

I was under the impression that putting in a formal request NOT to receive a phone book was a futile gesture, that a truck would still drive by and somebody would heave a big portion of a dead tree onto my front steps. But, some weeks ago, I received only this very small portion of a dead tree, above, which acknowledged that... formal request actually had an impact.

Wonderful, I say, but I would have preferred a notice about the size of a Post-It note.

Tree killer phone book devils? Please take a note.

No, wait, on second thought...don't take a note. Don't use any more paper. Just REMEMBER.

How do you send in a formal complaint? I get so mad about phone books every year. There are still a pile of them in my apartment entry. Maybe I can get my whole building avoided.

I just hooked up two former soviet-submarine analog tubes from my stereo to my laptop. Jesus! What do I call this, the inter-tubes? I might sell this idea to Qwest.
