    I was just reading the news on the USA Today site and this story came up. I wondered if this was an intentional prank...

    EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. - Folks who call the number listed in the phone book for the Madison
    County Transit District hear a woman breathlessly explaining, ''You need it bad, and we've got it
    good.'' She's not talking about the bus schedule. The number listed for the transit district in
    Ameritech's 1998-99 phone book was given up more than a decade ago. It is now is used by a
    X-rated 900-number. Nobody seems to know how the mixup happened. ''I'm not sure we will
    ever know where the breakdown occurred,'' Ameritech spokesman Ron Lanesey said Tuesday.
    Transit Director Jerry Kane said he learned about the problem when a woman called to report a tree
    had fallen on a bike trail. ''She said she thought I would be shocked if I checked that number,'' he
    said. The mixup will be corrected before the next phone book comes out in December, Lanesey
