Here's some good news:

FCC CHAIRMAN KENNARD APPLAUDS INDUSTRY DECISION TO PROVIDE
          TELECOMMUNICATIONS ACCESS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES
The deadline for mounting a legal challenge to our Section 255 rules
which provide access for people with disabilities to telecommunications
in the information age passed, with no challenges being filed.    I am
pleased that the industry is focusing its considerable talents on
implementing the rules rather than on challenging them.

The industry's willingness to focus on increasing access to people with
disabilities, rather than on litigation, is a testament to the enormous
amount of work industry representatives put into developing these rules.
It proves that collaborative problem solving yields the best result.

Love.
            ACCESSIBILITY IS RIGHT - NOT PRIVILEGE
