EBay, as the legend goes, became a billion-dollar global powerhouse after beginning its
life as a place where Pierre Omidyar's wife could sell and buy Pez dispensers. It's a
great story. And, as you no doubt know by now, it's not true. It was the fabrication of
a public relations whiz who won an award for spreading the story. But is there really
any harm in bending the truth into a good yarn, especially if it's the kind of
rags-to-riches success story everyone wants to hear?

How urgent is the need to provide broadband services for rural U.S. communities?
It's critical to the entire economy, and everyone should share the cost.
If rural residents really want high-speed Internet, they should foot the bill.
Internet providers will benefit -- they should build out their own networks.
The government should ensure that everyone is connected, but broadband isn't necessary.
People who choose to live off the grid do so for a reason -- leave them alone.
Providers should improve broadband services in heavily populated areas first.
