Well this is something. After years of pressure from activists, the European Parliament just passed a resolution urging its member states to offer protection to Edward Snowden. That would mean dropping all charges against the whistleblower and shielding him from extradition to the United States.

I'm sharing this post from 2010, again, because in spite of myself, and perhaps the evidence, I've been a Verizon fan for a VERY long time. Their customer service has always been spot on.

Tonight, my support, and their good ‪#‎customerservice‬, ended for me.
Verizon Wireless and Verizon (home phone) customer service (or lack thereof) has treated Jess and I with what may accurately be described as disregard at best and contempt at worst. It is becoming obvious that the Verizon ‪#‎Brand‬ is in decline.

They are over-priced, have nonsensical customer service protocol, and seem to favor their own sense of propriety and decorum over the needs of their customers.

So, like Ivan Illich, they too, no doubt, will suffer a similar fate.
