I still can't understand how this ever got to be such a big deal, or why it 
continues to be.  Even if the military weren't involved, the FCC has always 
been  the 500-pound gorilla cracking down on everybody from drunken ham 
operators to national networks and 2-second "wardrobe malfunctions."  Why 
don't the FCC and the Navy just get together and say, "screw you, 
LightSquared, GPS was fundamental infrastructure before you were a gleam in 
your founders' eye, so find a way to keep your wavelengths away from ours or 
we're going to drive you so far into debt Greece will look like Warren 
Buffett."  That's the treatment everybody else gets, so whose golden heinie 
is so kissable here, and why?
