Dave Barry takes on the telemarketers -- again

A month or two ago, Dave Barry wrote about the American Teleservices Association, one of the groups that is suing the government to have the Do Not Call list banned because it violates their free speech rights. So Barry published the association's toll-free telephone number under the premise that "Hey, if the ATA feels its members have a constitutional right to call you, then surely the ATA feels that you have an equally constitutional right to call the ATA."

Apparently so many people called that the number had to be disconnected.

But, as Berry let's us know now, the ATA has a new phone number (at least for now): 317-816-9336.

Expect that number to be non-reachable soon enough.
