I appreciate Joe's use of quotation marks here.    A lot of the dialog 
has included this 'fast lane' terminology, yet all of us know there's no 
'fast lane' being constructed, rather just varying degrees of _slow_ 
applied to existing traffic.

It's a shame the use of 'fast lane' is ubiquitous in this argument.    
If the local distribution networks would like to actually build 
something fast, then this would be a different story.
