Things started to clear up for us at around 1443 Central, so it wasn't
too long after I posted my original inquiry to the list.  By 1500
Central it seemed to be fully functional.  Over at our experience seemed to be reflected in
that the Network Availability metric for the Sprint/L3 intersection
started creeping back up from 80%.

This morning at 0830 I got a phone call from the BSAC folks at Sprint,
who said it was exclusively a routing issue within L3.  When I pressed
for details all I got was the same answer. Make of that what you will.
