1. The Fuck Comcast vote should have been enough to pass this in the first place.
2. It doesn't matter how much our corporate citizens spend trying to educate the electorate if, in the end, they vote their own conscience.
3. Those postcards are a hoot. It's like the worst parody of grandma-scaring (tm) GOP, ever. What sort of idiots would fall for that? Idiots that deserve to be raped by Comcast & SBC for eternity (or 99 years).
4. Why can't the government just include suitable performance metrics and penalties for failing to meet them when handing out the franchise? Including a regular review cycle? Oh, that's right stupidity and greed, par for the course.

The Famous Senate Restaurant Bean Soup Recipe

2 pounds dried navy beans
four quarts hot water
1 1/2 pounds smoked ham hocks
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste

Wash the navy beans and run hot water through them until they are slightly whitened. Place beans into pot with hot water. Add ham hocks and simmer approximately three hours in a covered pot, stirring occasionally. Remove ham hocks and set aside to cool. Dice meat and return to soup. Lightly brown the onion in butter. Add to soup. Before serving, bring to a boil and season with salt and pepper. Serves 8.

You are correct, they like it with a lot of pork. /snrk

Did you see dear leader on The Colbert Report last night?!!! /swoon

I'm sure that story will wander its way to /. in a few days.

(Just poking fun at /.'s mancrush on EM. I think it's nice that a few billionaires are willing to spend a little of their money on nerd projects like Musk, Bezos, Cameron.)

No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
