Time Keeps on Slippin’

timeslippingSlippin’, slippin’ into the future.

And in the time wasting department comes news that consumer groups are going to fight the AT&T Bellsouth merger.

After that, maybe Pee Wee Hermann can fight Lenox Lewis. And then maybe Dr. Ruth can play one on one with Shaquille O’Neal. Dino from the Flintstones versus Godzilla and King Kong.

I’m all about being heard. And I’m all about the little guy. Heck, I’m a long time subscriber to Consumer Reports and I give money to Greenpeace.

So some part of me wants to applaud when I read that Consumers Union and the Consumer Federation of America are going to fight the man. But not really.

Because the U.S., particularly the business part of it, is all about the almighty dollar. And at some point if you continue to stand between the man and his money, you’re just wasting your time.

Why not take that time and money and use it where it might be able to make a difference.
