Although I haven't experienced it (there ain't much on AM nowadays I
care to hear), I would expect it to be subject to the same sort of
"cliff effect" that is characteristic of DTV.
The real significance of this petition is that it articulates quite
effectively the extent to which "small government," lobbying by big
money, and the bribery called campaign contributions has made the FCC
the equivalent of a failed state. To that extent, I applaud and support
