Hah. Classic. But, but, Dan, that trick-or-treating wasn't all. But if they harness their own content, then what would you have.. a captive supplier to an mono/whateverpoly? Oh what fun that would be for Christmas, on a one horse open sleigh. 'Tis the season, guys. Ho Ho Ho.

You've got to admit, though, the ability to completely fade out reality and invent your own is impressive, and those CEO's ought to be commended.

And while we're doing this with RBOCs, we can bitch about MSOs just the same. One might find a surprising number of similarities.
