15 minutes

Whatever happened to Baby Bell?

Editor's note -- Basically, AT&T is buying 130-million T-Mobile's customers for $39 billion. According to the Wall Street Journal, Sprint cellular is concerned. The Editor agrees with Sprint.   

  AT&T  will have a virtual communications monopoly over the Editor if the FCC approves this sale. An AT&T broadband DSL modem controls her phone service, television, internet and wireless service.

One time AT&T had some sort of glitch and the Editor had to call them using her T-Mobile cell phone. If AT&T had owned T-Mobile at that time, the Editor might not be publishing this post today.

Older Motorola needs to be switched out for newer model while T-Mobile still offers that service.

Questionable decision?

Editor's note -- Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium bought

 Marineland in January to rename it

Marine Dolphin Adventure. 

The Editor is not sure why it wasn't renamed

after the 1955 film

Revenge of the Creature.

Revenge of the Creature (from the Black Lagoon) filmed at Marineland

Nothing new

Editor's note -- The Awl's appallingly sensationalist tweet is nothing more than a compilation of randomly selected normalities from the Orlando Sentinel.   

 The Awl 
 by KarenAGardner
It's Always Fucked Up In Central Florida 

"In an exhibition hall near the back of the fairgrounds, away from the Ferris wheel and corndog stands, kids from across Central Florida showed off their rabbits and guinea pigs in hopes of taking home cash prizes and awards."

Editor's note -- Perhaps, though, there's nothing normal about a corndog.

UPDATE:  The Awl neglected to mention this blog's Walt Disney post from December in their appalling sensationalist tweet. 
Happy Birthday Uncle Walt
