Notable Quote – Scott Rohter

by Skip June 2, 2013

Fairpoint vs PSNH vs The Customer

by Mike June 2, 2013

Whilst I agree with Skip’s premise, that Fairpoint themselves are so bad that they are almost a reason to leave New England, I might be inclined to call this a case of “PSNH Happens”.

Notable Quote: Albert Jay Nock

by Steve MacDonald June 2, 2013
