    ... in the same way that phone and power companies used to - by claiming that "nobody else can use OUR wire."  Which we know is only true because they don't ALLOW anyone else to use their wire.  It's just the same age-old argument about sharing one's toys that should have been learned in kindergarten!

    What I'm saying here is that if POWER providers have to share the wiring infrastructure to your home, so you can choose a POWER provider, and if PHONE SERVICE providers also have to share the wiring infrastructure to your home, so you can choose a phone company, WHY don't CABLE providers have to share the wiring infrastructure to your home?  Well, there are two answer to this question -

    1) They don't want to (because then there WOULD be competition), AND

    B) They don't HAVE to (which speaks to the need for regulations to SUPPORT competitiveness - in EVERY market segment!)

    OF COURSE the New Right is wrong - but that doesn't make WRONG the new RIGHT!
