The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

No surprise here

The SBC Bricktown Ballpark, following SBC's acquisition of AT&T and the assumption of its name, will be renamed the "AT&T Bricktown Ballpark" today.

Everybody, of course, will still call it The Brick.

You should work for them. It has been very interesting indeed! They were busy making new pictures for our new at&t id cards. What is wrong with the ones we currently have on file? No good answer to that. Our email addresses very suddenly and with no notice at all changed from to Slowly but surely it is all changing over. The scariest part is the willy-nilly adoption of those practices which were well known and well hated at the former AT&T now finding their way into place.

I thought that SBC bought AT&T, not the other way around?

Before the middle 1980s, there was only AT&T; the Baby Bells, including Southwestern Bell, which eventually became SBC, were split off from it by an antitrust decree.

So this is a case of the child, um, eating its mother, so to speak.
