Re: Good riddance A better analogy would be:
Lightsquared bought a piece of property in a quite residential district. Even though property is available in much more expensive commercial districts, Lighsquared thinks they have the local politicians in their back pocket, so they open a noisy night club in the middle of the sleepy part of town thinking their variance is in the "bag".
The club opens on a "trial" basis and things are ugly. Pounding music until 3 AM, people puking in the street, beer cans everywhere. The residents realize the "Cluster Frank" this is, and eventually make a big enough stink that the local politicians have no choice but to shut the club down.
By the reasoning of the folks here who support Lightsquared's use of their spectrum outside it's original allocation, the families who live around the noisy night club should be forced to live with the noise, traffic, and irritation. Why not? They could just better insulate their homes and draw their shades. After all, the night club is making money. Even though there is a night club district on the other side of town with plenty of open ground where the club could operate without disturbing the local residents.
Problem is, the open ground in the night club district is pricey. VERY pricey.
So, Lightsquared has 2 choices. Sell their land, or build a house and take a nap.
