Today's lesson in bureaucracy: The New York state DMV recently stopped using 1-800-DIAL-DMV as a toll-free number. It did not, however, do a bang-up job getting the word out, and the number is still showing up on brochures and websites. Which would be OK if the number didn't now belong to a phone-sex line that asks surprised New Yorkers to pony up 2 bucks a minute for an "intimate encounter." More at Failuremag.
