It is wrong to think that in this internet age paper phone books are
useful for little else than ad-hoc stands for coffee cups. Down in
rural Kentucky, residents and business people are upset that Verizon
has left out 10,000 customers from its latest edition and as a result
the phone company is having to reprint the whole thing. One small
town was almost completely left out of the White Pages and one in
three entries in the Yellow Pages were given with the wrong town name,
And across the line in Virginia, the State Corporation Commission is
investigating significant ongoing incidences of errors and omissions
in the White Pages of Verizon telephone directories in four districts
this year. Two years ago it forgot to give any non-emergency numbers
for one town's police and fire services.
