[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Yeah, but read the part of the story
where it says "futher court proceedings [i.e. discussion of fines and
punishments] have been adjourned until January 20, 2006." That is
when they will meet to to decide what to do about the whole mess. My
thinking is at that point they will all be friends again and any
discussion of fines and punishments will be forgotten about. No doubt
that little fact will be reported in a paragraph on page 79 of the
next day's newspaper. PAT]
