    Like everything else in the state communciatons network, as soon as it is turned over to state control it'll quit working due to a lack of maintenance. And as usual, there will be lots of fingerpointing and gnashing of teeth. After it is determined that the maintenance will be too expensive, it will be warehoused a while then make its way to state surplus where it will be sold for pennies on the dollar.

    Mike could have done a better job with this article. While we spent nearly 20 minutes on the phone he could only provide one quote which not only made me appear "un-educated" but certainly didn’t do him any justice with regard to his level of professionalism as a writer. Needless to say I have expressed my displeasure to our PIO.
