Isin't it amazing that it's the *town* and not the *people in that town* 
that's rejecting progress here? 

I suppose what the *people* want simply doesn't matter. You want high 
speed reliable Internet for $40 a month? Tough luck because your town 
would rather limit you to spending $70 a month for lower-grade service 
from Crumcast! 

I would say it's high time for a nice town meeting!!!!
