Yes, with nice, large, concentric circles painted on the appropriate part of the anatomy :-) Frankly, this could be a *good* thing for the industry. Among other things large organizations have a habit and history of being unable to perceive and act on market-based changes quickly enough to capitalize on them. They tend to act like 900lb Gorillas instead, which is great if you're into slow, plodding things, and not so good if you aren't fast enough to get stepped on. But eventually, stepping on people draws the fire of people on the DOJ side of the fence. -- -- Karl Denninger (karl@MCS.Net)| MCSNet - Serving Chicagoland and Wisconsin http://www.mcs.net/~karl | T1's from $600 monthly to FULL DS-3 Service | NEW!
