Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds. -- Henry Adams * An election is a moral horror, as bad as battle except for the blood; a mud bath for every soul concerned. -- George Bernard Shaw * Politics, n.

Off in a corner, obscured from view by the European excitement over a single currency and transparent borders, stands a hard little nut, the divided island of Cyprus. Not even Richard Holbrooke, Washington's No. 1 steamroller, has been able to crack it. A head-on approach never will. The salvation of Cyprus, populated by a Greek Cypriot majority and a Turkish minority, lies in the mother capitals, Athens and Ankara. That's where pressure should be applied.

Re "America's broadband blues," July 23 Harold Feld fails to deliver much analytic value. Instead of attacking my New York Times opinion piece as Pollyanna advocacy because he doesn't approve of the facts, Feld should digest the impact that changing circumstances have on Internet policy.

This is the way it should be.
