# they could be bankrupt
<rant extended...> Surely someone there (or in Congress) recognizes that they're on the same course the railroads took in the '50s, et seq.:
- Reduced service -> customers find alternate solutions ->reduced service
- Pricing favoring a customers with alternates, and discouraging customers with limited alternatives
- An assumption that technological advances (aka: www) provide inexpensive and efficient service to customers not targetted for service (ie, in the RR analogy, 'not on the main line').
