Whenever Amazon.com chief financial officer Warren Jenson decided to leave his post,
determining when to announce it was a delicate matter. Not that Jenson is leaving under
any kind of cloud. But the fact that no one has pushed the panic button over his departure
is somewhat surprising, not only because of the uncertain economic times but
also because investors often seem to want to believe Amazon is on shaky ground.

It has been a number of years and finally Amazon posts a tiny profit, albeit using "pro forma" data. I applaud Mr. Jenson for a job well done and wish him Godspeed to his next endeavor...now the vultures may attack the newly birthed baby and rip it to shreds...they must be short!

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.
