“Banner of Hypocrisy:” Whose Subsidy?

A letter of support for Lafayette’s telecom utility from the northwestern tip of Washington state is to be found in the current Independent. It good to know that folks across the country are following our travails.

The author makes a good point about “subsidization.” BellSouth gets lots of subsidizes–from the federal, state, and in Lafayette even from the local government. (Remember the Cingular deal?) My guess is that LUS gets no such subsidizes. In fact LUS, in a perverse turn of fate, is providing subsidized electricity to Cingular, BellSouth’s wireless subsidy.

Hypocrisy, thy name is BellSouth. And even folks on the other side of the continent can see that easily.
