The Obstructionists channel Karen Carpenter

The Advocate has a story on Terry Huval's claim that the obstructionist tactics of BellSouth and Cox have already added costs to the LUS fiber to the home project.

While it is true (and regrettable), get ready for this to turn into a long-running performance.

Hell, this struggle has barely darkened the doorway of the Louisiana Public Service Commission. There will undoubtedly be lawsuits, too.

Having clearly lost the fight in the court of public opinion in Lafayette, BellSouth and Cox are preparing for protracted regulatory and legal fights.

Think Bill Oliver and Garry Cassard snarling a speed metal version of "We've Only Just Begun" through clenched teeth. That's about where we are.
