CHANGE WE NEED
The F.C.C. is proposing a 10-year plan to make the Internet our dominant communication network – and 25 times as fast as what most of us now have.

In the meantime, the F.C.C. has set up a site that lets you test your broadband speed.

‘Stunning,’ writes the tough-minded group, Democrats for Education Reform, of the progress made to date. ‘We don’t know how else to put it.’
WE HAVE HOT WATER!
If you need a little cheering up . . . and who among us from time to time does not? . . . this account of life above the Arctic Circle just might do the trick. It comes to us via a fellow long-suffering BOREF shareholder, Nicholas Altenbernd, who writes: ‘This may help explain why it’s taking a long time for our mine to develop.’ Indeed.
