The new phone book is garbage

Back in the old days when the new phone book came, we were as excited as Steve Martin in his seminal work, The Jerk, when as Navin R. Johnson he exclaimed,
"The new phone book's here. The new phone book's here. This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need. My name in print. That really makes somebody. Things are going to start happening to me now."
The new phone book is garbageNow with the power of the internet and Yahoo! People Search, there is no excitement when the new phone book is delivered to our door. Now the new phone book is just garbage.

We're just sad. Sad for the trees. Sad for the advertisers that spend their money trying to drum up a little business. And sad for those of us without internet access.
