It’s an unexpected pleasure to find a real grass-roots victory over a well-funded propaganda campaign. Sign of the times?

Greenfield, Massachusetts has such a utility going on line now. It has had a few kinks but works well. A great first step toward public ownership of public utilities.

Why not? Especially in the light of pirate corporatism and captured regulators.

good for my old state!

now you have to watch out for Hicken-a-hole and the legislature, both of whom will be revisiting the Guaranteed Private Monopoly legislation that’s sure to be proposed now. Especially since the telecom’s learned their ads can be beaten.

Keep up the pressure! Just remember that only now are these scum going to put up a real fight.
