a bit

How cool - MCI just dropped a mobile phone/broadband unit into Port Charlotte - not far from us. Free calls. Free internet. Not wireless, but still brilliant.

On the other hand, Sprint, our local telephone provider (formerly United Telephone), offers one payphone to the entire community - the same one it has offered for years. They just missed a splendid PR opportunity. I think I'll go back to calling them Shrimp.

Thanks to all who have written, blogged, cared. I will try to compose something more legato about all this disruptive aftermath. But, fragments have always interested me. This chaos connects with Mexico, with myth, with something beyond the bullshit reality that takes our attention from what's just outside the frame.
