    There's a nice article on Arstechnica [] about the ISPs fighting to prevent municipalities from being able to do their own broadband. This looks like one more step toward the total monopoly the cable companies would like.

    I like to think I'm a hard core capitalist but I'm hoping the SEC or somebody will stop this.
