MCI Bites the Dust

Verizon to takeover MCI

Okay, this is sweet. In my book on the rise of the Internet, I spend parts of multiple chapters on the evils of MCI: its gaming of regulations, its corporate subsides at the expense of the public, its gobbling up of independent Internet providers in its attempt to strangle them. And MCI-WorldCom was one of the nastiest, union-busting companies out there.

So to watch MCI fall to a unionized Baby Bell is just lovely.
