Re: bad PR

This is in Michigan -- one of the states where our elected officials decided to team up with AT&T, and pass a franchise reform bill. Franchises are granted at the State level, with no input or responsibility to the local level.

In turn, us citizens can appear before the state PUC's monthly meetings (located in Lansing) and petition for a hearing if we want anything done. Currently, their schedule has slots about 12 - 16 months away, if they choose to pick up your request.

It's an awesome setup -- and allows for consequence-free actions of our local telecoms :S
