Americans plagued by telemarketing bastards now have the choice of opting out of what at times can be a living hell by being included in the national "do not call" registry. This is a start, but my fear is that the telemarketers will just move to Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas and continue as usual. I've gotten telemarketing calls from outside the country before. Once it was a British guy in Toronto trying to get me to join some kind of military book club. I told him I wasn't interested, but what I really wanted to do was ask him if he was aware that Virginia was an American state and not a Canadian province. Telephones are a bad idea anyway. Leave me alone.
