On a very special episode of Death Star Reborn: The AT&T/BellSouth Merger

Commissioner McDowell teaches FCC Chairman Kevin Martin and his fellow Commissioners a valuable holiday lesson in ethics, good will toward men, good faith negotiation, and what happens when you put Robert McDowell in a very nasty ethics position.

I swear to God, for us telecom poliocy geeks, this combines the drama of Ugly Betty with your favorite anime, but without the cleavage. (Hey! Indecency standards!)

McDowell announces he will abide by his ethics agreement and refuse to participate in mattersin which Comptel is a major party until one year has passed since he left Comptel on May 31, 2006. So if this stuff is still hanging around in June, he'll play. But if the god folks at AT&T/BS would like to see their merger approved sooner, they need to start making some concessions.
