    What kind of neighborhood is this area? working class?

    Working class is probably the right description -- see my link above. This part of North Oakland had a bad rep, but has gentrified a little bit, unlike the deep East Oakland and ghetto West Oakland areas.

    including a $40,000 contract with the phone company and their stupid yellow pages.

    Wow, you got hosed on that one. Maybe this was back when the Yellow Pages meant something, but now they're a complete and utter ripoff. Those salesguys are relentless, however.

    A lot of Yellow Pages salespeople are fraudsters. They will send an invoice to your office if you're a doctor, dentist, lawyer, accountant, or other professional even without talking to you first, in the hopes that your office staff will pay it without questioning because it looks legit. A lot of these Yellow Pages companies sometimes publish books that aren't even tied to your local area and don't have great circulation, so they're a complete ripoff.

    Walter Jones of North Carolina.

    That's a weird one. He represents a safe district, he is a reliable conservative, and he led the idiotic campaign for Freedom Fries. That said, he was one of the few Republicans in Congress who eventually opposed the Iraq campaign (and took a lot of shit from leadership about doing so).
