Verizon does the right thing

UPDATE: It seems that Verizon may still be sponsoring Akon through his association with the Gwen Stefani tour, which is being sponsored by Verizon. No word whether V is going to push for his removal from the tour. So hold off on buying those new mobile phones.

I was about to post about Verizon's arrangement with Akon, when Verizon released the following:

Verizon decided this week to end its support and sponsorship of Akon.

Apparently enough people complained about Verizon's business arrangements to make it an issue worth addressing. Now comes the tricky part....will Verizon keep to the straight and narrow down the road?

I'll go back to considering Verizon - they just laid fiber cable in front of my house this week. Time for even faster internet??

H/T to Michelle Malkin for the news.
