Problem solved (sort of). Thanks to all who helped. An <unamed> ISP was
leaking routes they picked up via a biazzare (and apparently
nonfunctional path). The last hop before the path got to us was Sprint
(AS1239) (which we are connected to). We have withdrawn our route from
Sprint which made the bogus routes go away and restored connectivity.
Fortunately I have other connections I can use. We are attempting to
contact <unamed> to get them to clean up their act.
