TelCo Foils Tin-Hat Crowd, Places Cell Tower on State Property
|I want to believe...|
T-Mobile has apparently obtained political cover from a different source -- governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The company has notified the state Public Utilities Commission that it plans to install six 156-foot cell phone towers on a new dorm building at the University of California campus at Mission Bay, a site exempt from local meddling because it's on state property:
We can expect more of this sort of deviousness. If they continue with their dastardly plans -- placing towers on politically immune locales such as homeless shelters, blimps, federal property, consulates, and the domicile of every powerful liberal in the city -- they might horrify the anti-radio-wave crowd by producing the ultimate evil: cell phone coverage that actually makes the devices useful in San Francisco.
