Exactly my point.  We were a GLOBAL network and you saw that
advertisement in all parts of the world.  You couldn't say it was in the
US, or even in NA.  We did cold potato because we had the bitchenest ;)
network.  So you'd hit our network in the local area and use it for the
rest of the path.  The offices weren't even all in the US.  Only the main
office was in SF.

Notice that I use past tense in my words.  As far as how it's announced
now-a-days, C&W did (and is doing) a lot more dumb a$$ things than that...
