To the Editor:
    The precedent is stark. The internet is as key to business and innovation in the early 21st century as the railroads were in the early 20th century.  Again, a handful of the wealthy propose to hold us by the throat. Again the solution is the same. The internet must be designated a public utility and subject to the Common Carrier regulations that were hammered out and enacted under the Roosevelt and Taft administrations.  The hard work has been done. Chairman Wheeler just has to reclassify the internet as a Communication Service and let the Law work for all of us, not just for the Telecomm giants.
