re: AT&T Stalking Europe for Mergers... Can't read the link as it's for subscribers, but just the title itself suggests there needs to be a Rebellion against the Evil Empire and destroy the Death Star.

Re: re: AT&T Stalking Europe for Mergers... Why? Just because we're supposed to hate AT&T?
Re: Cell towers cell towers should go through the same approval process as any other private structure.
you really wouldn't want the house next door torn down, and to live in the shadow of a 100' plus tower, with lighting, transformer hum, emergency generator, 24 hour parking and service without notice, if there was no control over set back, landscaping, noise levels, etc.
allow the company building tower to determine location and if they can live within local requirements.
Local authorities (and the citizens) can make the regulations (and exemptions) to allow the level of service they desire
| || The same NIMBY folks that complain about cell tower construction will ironically also the the first to gripe about lousy reception. These are the same ones that don't want a new jail near them but then complain about crime or the fact their taxes go up because local criminals have to be shipped to other counties because of lack of space at their current county jail. These are the same ones that don't want a Wal-Mart near them, but complain about the local mom and pop shops having limited selection and high prices.|
