Verizon directory more worthless than ever

To the Editor:

Verizon has done it again. Each year Verizon tweaks its annual directory to make it a little less user friendly, but this year they have really gone beyond absurd.

The 2011 edition arrived with no directory at all, just advertisers. Advertisers have always paid a price to have their ads at the back of the directory we all use to find one another, but now — no directory.

Who would want just a list of businesses willing to pay to be on said list?

Throw the damn thing away and if you know a local business owner, tell him or her it is time to find a new way to reach the Island population.
