The only thing I was "sure" about was that your assertion to Bert that the
cutoff date was not codified in law, and your subsequent assertion to me
that actual FCC practice did not follow that law, were both incorrect.

I do not dispute that the actual cutoff date may be many years after January
1, 2007.  However I will assert that in order for the actual cutoff date to
be extended beyond January 1, 2007, in those markets that do not meet any of
the criteria set forth in 47USC309(j)(14)(B), it will take another act of
Congress, or a Federal Court injunction.

My money is on the latter.
