my post said:

    % the democrats had their hands tied.  they just barely controlled
	 % the votes in the house, but wilson made it clear that he'd veto
	 % anything that was too different from his PUC commission's
    % framework.

yes, i said the house was barely democratic.

the house voted unanimously for the 1996 deregulation bill.  i said that too.
they voted unanimously on a bill written and sponsored by pete wilson.

* tons of well known (and mostly irrelevent) stuff deleted *

you don't need to explain what happened.  you won't find many people as up on
news and politics as i am.

my main thesis was that the current mess we're in started with pete wilson
and a republican PUC.   you wrote 120 lines, mostly an irrelevent description
of what happened.  but you never attacked this thesis.  if you agree with it,
then put a sock in it and let's get back to work.   :-)

but at the very end of 120 lines i see...

also bingo.
