That's good, Jarett.  I'm actually a Kucinich fan.  I can't get 
community-based project without government backing (think regulation) 
behind it.  The FCC and Martin, specifically, won't permit reasonable 
wholesale pricing to be a requirement of the spectrum auction happening, 
today.  Without imposing reasonable wholesale pricing, the whole idea of 
public decentralized wireless infrastructure is blocked.
