We'll be honest -- Verizon didn't give us much to yap about this week in the world of FiOS TV.

Go 'head, Adrian -- brush your shoulders off. In a day where politicians are allowed to make and break promises with no real repercussions, the Washington, D.C. mayor deserves a hearty round of applause.
