[amsat-bb] Lightsquared Analogy

I finally figured out a good analogy about the LightSquared and GPS fiasco.

There is a "music room" where people can go and, with headphones, listen to
their own music.  No one disturbs anyone else.  Everyone is happy.

A LightSquared rock band comes into the room and begins to play at max
volume, and then insists there should be no problem because the headphones
work just fine in providing the isolation between what each person is
listening to.

Therefore the interference to everyone in the room is not their fault, but
the fault of the Headphone Manufacturers!
