The Alameda Daily Noose and I have it on good authority that the entire population of Bay Farm Island, including Harbor Bay, has decided to sever its ties with the mainland's cable network. Frustrated by rising service costs, and the loss of competition in the form of Alameda Power and Telecom service, residents have cut the cord, and are installing satellite dishes by the hundreds.
An angry mob reportedly severed the cable on Tuesday, marking the spot of their historic nixing of Comcast cable service with a sign bearing the abbreviation, "CABLE X-ING." The Alameda Daily Noose and I wish we could have witnessed the mob scene, with the torches and cable cutters. Boy, that showed 'em!
