who wants the number ^^6: this town does not want the telephone code:
"Reeves, LA (AHN) - Beginning January 2, the city of Reeves, Louisiana will no longer carry the mark of the beast. After 40 years of carrying a stigma for having the number 666 as its area code, Reeves starts 2008 with a new code; 749. "
