The Schump Trumps Again (with some help from the FCC)

I am telecommuting, so I decided to celebrate VoIP State Freedom Day by calling Ray on his VoIP connection from my landline.

I figure the torch was passed in parts unknown between the originating end of my POTS call and the terminating end of his IP-enabled application. It was a "local" call only in the sense that I dialed a local TN, but reached him at his office in Denver. And although I assume that I am paying a below-cost rate for my basic local package thanks to state retail regulation, a service I only (and temporarily plan to) retain due to my roommate's inertia in changing his wireless number, somehow I think Ray still got the better end of the deal.
