Show us the money!

I'm hearing John Lennon singing, "Imagine all the applicants getting Priority Two."  But while the rest of us are dreaming, John Harrington over at Funds for Learning has come up with a plan.  He noticed that the new Connect American Fund has $4.5 billion available annually, and has asked the FCC to use some of that funding to make up on the funding shortage that the E-Rate faces every year.

And you can help.  You can sign this online petition (WARNING: when you open this page, music plays, so mute your speakers first).  Let's deluge the FCC with our support for more E-Rate funding.
