perhaps I've been smoking too much crack, but back when MSN was getting
started, Microsoft dumped a large amount of money in UUNET's lap.  How
much of this ended up going towards UUNET stock?  And if they owned a
chunk then, they'd own a chunk of Worldcomm now.  But then, I may just be
smoking too much crack.
