Subject:Phone books... I'm a visionary!
Time:11:31 pm
Remember my recent polls about phone books? I must be a visionary. I found this on SFGate today:

Under legislation they hope to take to Sacramento in January, state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, and Millbrae Councilwoman Gina Papan would bar phone companies from producing and distributing White Pages unless people choose to receive it.

They want to bar a private company from producing literature? Really? What the fuck?????

The old law mandating distribution annoys me too, but not as much.

Did you miss the part about "unless people choose to receive it". I am all for there being a law that a tree should not be killed on my behalf when I don't want the thing anyway. I'm tired of them dumping recycling on my front yard for me to have to dispose of.

Sadly they mention the white pages only. Not the yellow pages which are businesses. I would like to opt out if I could. I was just scared the other day but a huge "womp" outside my front door. I run to look what had just happened to find a white van and some young Mexican guys running the court dropping/tossing two shrink wrapped books on doorsteps. I swear it sounded bigger than it was!

Since I still have a wood burning fireplace, I use them as a fire starter.

Did you miss the part where I only mentioned printing, not distribution? I support getting rid of mandatory distribution but the original post mentioned prohibiting production as well.
