Equally distasteful to all--the cable compromise

It advanced in the House today. We're not promised lower rates, as the AT&T commercials have been advertising would come with competition. But we may get a slower growth in rates. I guess that's right up there with those rare days when gas goes down a penny a gallon.

Here's what the Governor had to say: "Gov. Phil Bredesen called the bill 'equally distasteful to all parties, which is always a good sign.'" Equally distasteful to all...I suppose that's the new standard for legislation. It's not exactly the compliment that Speaker Naifeh was probably looking for.
