"FOBs Go to War"

James K. Glassman writes about increasingly rancorous divisions within conservative ranks over how to handle the Bells:
"In the past few weeks, the Friends of Bell (FOB) have opened up with cannonades from every direction, all aimed -- weirdly enough -- at little old me and other conservatives who believe that the best route to competition in telecommunications is through allowing other companies access, at a reasonable price, to the network that the local Bell telephone giants built as protected and subsidized monopolies."

"... But, for companies that have been monopolies for so long, competition is no fun. So they won't give up. Rather than battling in markets, they prefer to fight in the courts and the legislatures and in letters that attack dissenters personally."
