Since this is a Boston based list, I though this Globe op-ed peice written 
by Great Media's Peter Smith, may have gone by without notice for a lot of

Make satellite radio keep competing

"THE FEDERAL Communications Commission should enforce its long-standing and 
well-reasoned prohibition against a satellite radio monopoly that it 
established in 1997 when it granted the spectrum licenses to XM and Sirius. 
The policy underlying this prohibition - to provide an opportunity for a 
competitive satellite service to benefit consumers - is as valid today as it 
was in 1997."
