Default Town Without Internet After Fiber-Optic Cable Shot Down

Not only does this article qualify for "stupid criminal" story of the week, it also provides us with "quote of the day." It's a New Year's tradition to shoot off guns at midnight in the village at the confluence of the Tanana and Yukon rivers, about 150 miles west of Fairbanks. This year, however, the shooters evidently weren't paying attention where they were pointing their guns when someone shot one of the main fiber-optic cable lines. "You can't fix stupid," is how Ralph Eller, owner of Yukon Telephone and Supervisions Cable TV, summed up the incident.
