Someone overpaid. I was just talking last night how I believe this is a dying publication. I guess at&t agreed and got out while the getting was good. I hate at&t, but this was smart on their part.

I let Google 'do the walking'.

Just like the movie rental store and film developing kiosk so goes the Yellow Pages; Completely surpassed and redundant. An idea whose time has come...and gone.
