Comment: No Monopoly There... (Score 1) 61

by The New Guy 2.0 (#49502071) Attached to: DOJ Could Nix Comcast-Time Warner Merger

There's DirecTV and Dish Network available in most places, and Comcast and Time Warner don't overlap, even in NYC where there's a line drawn between the two. FIOS is being offered where Verizon thinks it's possible, and AT&T U-Verse exists where it was set up.

You have to get this down to one before you can call it a monopoly.

Simulated call...

Suspect: I'm going to deliver some mail by Gyrocopter on the west lawn of the capitol buliding. Here's my ID and flight plan.
Spook: Uhm, that's a no-fly zone...
Suspect: Thanks for letting me do this.
Spook: We'll have plenty of capitol police around you when you get there.

The US Government doesn't accept mail at sites anymore... they download it from Earth Class Mail.
