I went to the local Adelphia office to pay my bill and inquired about the pending rate increase. The young lady at the front desk indicated that it would be on my next bill.
I told her that I had requested that the city have a hearing on the increase.
She told me that they wouldn't likely have a hearing because when Adelphia makes more money, the city does too.
I pondered this for a while and finally concluded that we have the fox watching the hen house.
