This refers to those nagging mystery charges that pop up on many consumers' telephone bills -- some 20 million people all together, the government agency has estimated -- that range from 99 cents to $19.99 or even more. They are vaguely worded or inconspicuously placed -- or both -- but the bottom line, no pun intended, is that consumers are charged more than they should be.

Like first getting our house in order and then putting the telcos in the place the divestiture was meant to do. Not allowing the recombination of these spin-offs to their former glory.
