Even though the local phone companies faced regulation barring them from taking too much advantage of this fact, ISPs and wholesalers have repeatedly accused the giants of dragging their feet in selling service or lines to competitors. The last few weeks have seen the wholesalers' dreams collapse. But because Ma Bell didn't acquire NorthPoint's customers, and NorthPoint didn't have the funds to run its own network, most of those customers went dark last week.
On Tuesday, Rhythms said it had been notified that it is being delisted from the Nasdaq, adding that it is looking for a buyer. Also Tuesday, Covad said it would delay the filing of its annual report to federal regulators, citing "complex accounting issues" related in part to its ISP customers' financial problems. This streak of bad news doesn't mean the beleaguered companies are altogether finished.
On Wednesday, Covad announced that it had signed a new agreement with Compaq Computer to provide high-speed access for the PC company's small-business program. But the prospect of switching customers to yet another provider--a process inside the local telephone offices that can take weeks--is prompting many ISPs to think about hedging their bets as soon as possible. From the perspective of many larger ISPs, there's only one safe bet left: Go with the Bells.

They might be difficult to work with, the reasoning goes, but they at least provide some semblance of stability for their subscribers.
Most of the largest, such as EarthLink and Telocity, already have direct relationships with the big local phone companies as well as with the struggling wholesalers.
A few--most notably MSN, which relied almost wholly on NorthPoint for its high-speed connections--were caught off guard, however. In its apology letter to customers after the NorthPoint dissolution, MSN said it wouldn't make that mistake again.
But for some small ISPs, the choice of service providers remains slim because large Bells do not want to deal in small numbers. Idiom, an ISP in the San Francisco area that now uses Covad, is one company worried about being caught in this size squeeze.
Idiom owner David Sharnoff says his ISP of customers is too small to sign deals with SBC subsidiary Pacific Bell, which prefers to deal with larger players that can supply customer volume. Even Covad is going this route and does not cater to small ISPs anymore. Idiom had to sign a deal with wholesaler Pac-West Telecomm just so it could receive Covad service. This turnaround in the face of market pressure disturbed Sharnoff, who said that in the last couple of years, Covad "went from being the nicest telephone company to deal with to being the worst.
So when the Obama administration decided to attack the church on some of its core doctrinal beliefs, it came as a shock. This has caused an awakening of the threat to our religious freedoms outlined in the Constitution.
This is overstepping the bounds on religious liberty. Our government is not in the business of requiring changes to religious doctrinal views.

The Catholic Church will never agree that abortion is OK. For the church, a life is a life. In January, the Supreme Court ruled that the Lutherans have a right to dismiss clerics who are out of line with their beliefs, even though the government supported the individual.
During the previous administration, there was agreement from all involved that faith-based groups are already on the ground providing services to the needy. Bishop Howard Hubbard points out in his Jan. The Catholic Church seems to have been picked because if it can be subdued, all others will follow.

Since giving succor to the poor and the sick are basic Catholic religious values, and since Catholic Charities and hospitals are living examples of these religious values, instructing us all in selfless service, Mr. Krauthammer appears to have not only missed the relationship, but to have purposely twisted his argument to paint the president and his secretary as heartless and incompetent.
