Ah...as of Friday all Americans can be free of telemarketers...well, sorta. The gov't is creating a National Do Not Call Registry...the first day it came out, 7 million ppl registered. Needless to say, computer networks were very full. The actual registry list will start being enforced Oct. 1. After that, it's an $11,000 fine for telemarketers if they call a person on that list. Of course, you have to complain if they do, or nothing will happen. I just registered. I'm so happy. It's valid until 2008. If you too want to join the rush, visit The Site.

there is one sad side of the story...some telemarketers will be losing their jobs...actually, a lot. awww, such is life.
