ThornyRose Stands up for Fiber

Here's a blast from the past that I missed passing on right after the election. Every so often I tinker around with the search engines seeing what unusual things I can pull up about Lafayette and fiber optics. This time I came across a vibrant post in Broadband Reports in response to the Lafayette's victory in the fiber optic referendum. It's fun enough to be worth sharing even at this distance in time.

Tidbits:
My husband, who is one of the 1,300 employees with the Cingular Call Center in question, came home with so much propagandized mess spewing from his mouth last Thursday that I, quite unabashedly, giggled in his face and asked him how brainwashing felt...

FTTH has passed, and I've never been more jubilant. LUS has done a fantastic job with electricity and water, and I really can't wait to be first in line for fiber. I just can't contain my glee in telling BellSouth and Cox to shove it where the sun doesn't shine in two years...

As for my husband losing his job...There are other jobs out there. And personally, if his job hinges on the whims of a crackpot like Oliver and his henchmen, then I'm glad my hubby will be somewhere else...

But I will say this...Last week, Cox raised rates in every city in Louisiana EXCEPT Lafayette. Coincidence? I think not. But it will be interesting to see if Cox and BellSouth will settle for a smaller piece of the pie, or if they cut their own throats and settle for NO pie...

Viva le Lafayette et Joey Durel!
Now doesn't that just sound like your favorite aunt? The one that your really admired? It's folks with that sort of attitude that make places into real communities.
