Hi Scott,

You're welcome to give it a try. I'll cheer you on and offer any data,
letters, etc. that I can. Sad to say, but folks in the DC area are
true masters of intransigence. We've elevated it to an art form.

That billing dispute with the gas company took 18 months to resolve,
and didn't get fixed until after it was referred to their lawyers.
Even then I strongly suspect the fact that I was offering to pay them
when the guy who opened the account and whose name was on the bill
died 25 years prior probably had more to do with it than any argument
about reasonableness.
