No new news here for those of us who follow BBR and those who actually care (probably about 2% of Americans...number generated unscientifically while sitting at my computer eating Doritos).
The real question is what can we do? Not much. Voting with our wallets isn't a choice for many people who have no choice (don't bring up satellite).

Sorry, feeling a little bitter...or is it indigestion from too many Doritos?
