Verizon has a new calling plan: make all the calls you want for $99.95 a month. I can't help it, this plan reminds me of a joke that ran through Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strips back in the 1950's. One hundred dollars at that time would be a lot more money today, even if you used it to buy electronics. In the Pogo strip, the three bats, Bewitched, Bothered and Bemildred, used to play cards. One of the cards in their deck was actually an ad that said: "Come to Meebles. All you can eat, $99.95."
