Let's Do the Time Warp Again

Once upon a time there was only one long distance telephone company. Back in the dark ages, this company was governmentally mandated to break into smaller companies to provide competition in the market. Like many governmental plans it didn't go exactly the way it was intended.

Not too long ago, SBC bought what was left of the once dominant company. They took on the well known logo. Now they are buying Bell South (and its Cingular Wireless, formerly known as AT&T Wireless before they sold it).

So, having left AT&T a while ago, I'm about to be one of their customers again. Sigh. Business. And yes, the deal is in stock instead of actual money.
