If they are single homed, what's this about:

   4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330
   Marina Del Rey, California 90292

   Autonomous System Name: L-ROOT
   Autonomous System Number: 20144

Maybe I'm just being dense - it wouldn't be the first time - but if ICANN
isn't multi homed, or *about* to be multihomed, why are they holding on to
scarce resources like an ASN?

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and 
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
