Wait, Qwest Doesn’t Own Dex? D’oh!

If you dumped your company’s products on peoples’ doorsteps without their consent, you’d probably be arrested. Not the yellow pages cartel. So how do you get even? Create a giant phone-book shaped art sculpture in front of Qwest’s headquarters. Which would be even better if Qwest hadn’t sold its Dex yellow pages division to RH Donnelley several years ago, but we’re willing to cut the performance artists some slack because they probably don’t read the business section.
