09-20-2003: Today, Stinkweasel staff is headed for Miami, Florida, USA.
We'd like to give a great big salute! to Dave Barry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist from the Miami Herald. You see, in a recent column, he decided to mix things up a little.
On August 31st, he published the phone number for the American Teleservices Association, the national not-for-profit "trade association" for telemarketers. In other words, the group of jackasses who call you again and again and again and ignore your plees to put you on their do-not-call list.
Anyhoo, Barry published their number. And thousands of people called them, just to let them know how much we appreciate their intrusions into our daily lives. And can you believe they actually had the gall to whine and complain about it? By the way, their number (toll free!) is 1-877-779-3974. Give them a call - I'm sure they'd be very happy to know that you appreciate the job they do!
A great, big, salute! goes to Dave Barry, for giving them a taste of their own crappy medicine. Check out the column that won him the coveted salute!
