I like the idea of making the 666 code available. How apt. Sprint, my mobile provider, at several times yesterday robo-called me anonymously (with a blocked caller ID), offering a "free message", essentially disguising a survey, which left me both pissed and flabbergasted.

Congress reaches payroll tax-cut deal
By Richard Cowan and Thomas Ferraro | Reuters February 16, 2012
news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans, set to expire at the end of this month, would be extended through December under a bipartisan deal announced early on Thursday by U.S. congressional leaders.

The accord would also renew expiring jobless benefits for millions of others and prevent a pay cut for doctors of elderly Medicare patients.

The comprehensive agreement represents a victory for President Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress, and allows Republicans to put behind them a tax debate that threatened to hurt them in the November elections.

Economists say the tax cut extension and renewal of jobless benefits should provide a lift to the U.S. economy, certain to be a key issue in the battle for control of Congress and the White House in the run-up to Election Day.

"We have reached an agreement and we're moving forward," Republican Representative Dave Camp, who headed the negotiating committee, told reporters shortly after midnight EST on Thursday.
It was not immediately clear when the House of Representatives and Senate would vote on the deal, but lawmakers hoped to do so before they leave Friday for a week-long recess.

While congressional leaders announced a deal, they said a few undisclosed details had to be resolved before the agreement could be turned into a final bill. They expressed confidence this would be done quickly.

Let Them Eat Cellphones: Why Mobile Wireless is No Solution for Broadband
From the Journal of Information Policy, 2011

A snip:
"Therefore, when it comes to the future role of wireless, everyone wants the answer to be "yes." ...There are not many skeptical voices. This article is one.
Let us look at the elements of the mobile wireless strategy. First, will it happen? Second, will it do the job of spreading next-generation broadband? Third, is it future-proof? "

The portion related to spectrum is 147 pages in the latest version. I don't have a public link to it but I imagine one will be available soon.

At 3500 pages, and many deletions, additions, and changes along the way, what are the odds that even 1% of the members of Congress have read it? It's just not possible to keep up with that much reviewing, and consider that each member of Congress has many other bills they need to be tracking. It's no wonder...well, never mind....
