Good question, Brian.  The mayor and the governor provided letters that 
are so similar, it's obvious they're both tainted by the same talking 
points.  Someone sold them a stock position they should take, when 
anyone drifts from the corporate line.  It would take alot for me to be 
convinced money isn't changing hands with the culprits being the 
telcos/cablecos who are using profits we provide, to grease the palms of 
corrupt officials.  Hard to fight that tactic.
