I'm thinkin' of giving Comcast the heave-ho

I just got my first tab in the mailbox for our new DSL line, and Jumpin' Jack Armstrong, I thought I was going to faint when I opened it up - it's darn near 60 clams a month! That was the monthly nut on my first house back in the 30's, now it barely gets you email. Why one measly wire and a box with a couple lights on it costs that much is a dome-scratcher, that's for sure.

I guess it's just one more sign that our big blue marble is going to H-E-double hockey sticks in a handbasket, and pronto.

Son, I appreciate you trying to help. But all that technical mumbo-jumbo just makes my melon hurt. Break it down in English and maybe you and me can have a sit-down and hash it out.
