Re "Let the Marketplace Decide," editorial, Jan. 16:
What should be noted is that America Online provided a discount, if you paid cash up front. I personally parted with over $400. Taking that figure and multiplying it, by say 2 million customers ($800 million)--presto: unlimited use of a lot of money. Maybe AOL decided to let us eat cake. However, I can't log on AOL to get the recipe.
