         Where are you located, Cap?  There are a few places in New 
Mexico where the extra hops are necessary, and quite a few where no 
amount of hops will get you to another live op.  We might want to do 
a detailed analysis of the whole state before calling somebody a 
"too-self-absorbed spammer".

         We've had this discussion before, more than once, and the 
general idea is that people in the big cities all think they know 
better that WE do how to operate our stations out in the sticks.
