S. these days related to the new subsidy plan for rural dwellers, the apportionment of radio spectrum between civilian and military users, the restrictions that keep networks healthy and the means of financing and managing next-generation fiber and wireless networks, but broadsided criticisms that are all but completely divorced from the facts aren't going to help policymakers solve our problems. They may just sell some books, however, and that appears to be David Cay Johnston's sole concern.
