    HATE THEM

    Finally, something we can all agree on.

    Although the litterer was wrong, we all know how he/she feels: these have got to go. I've got a dozen in my lobby.

    What is the home address of the highest Verizon executive in the Bay State? I have a special delivery for him.

    This is so inefficient

    Verizon hires some company to load them into trucks and distribute them all over the neighborhood. Then they sit out for a while, and then we the taxpayers hire a trash hauling company to pick them up and haul them to a landfill. Wouldn't it be simpler and more efficient for the city to pay Verizon to have them sent directly to the landfill?

    DISGRACEFUL!

    The board should haul Verizon in for the flagrant blocking of a hydrant! Maybe they should even go so far as to bar Verizon from offering their FIOS services in Bos-- oh wait...
