    Hopes haggling will be resolved within a week

    Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., up 14 cents at $2.42

    An FCC commissioner signaled that he hopes the haggling over a proposed merger with XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. will be resolved within a week.

    Wonder who that is. Anyone got any additional information?

    Could it be Copps?

    Quote from article:

    Copps -- who joined all of the commissioners but Martin on a panel at the conference -- said he remained where he has always been on the merger: It presents "a really steep climb to demonstrate they are serving the public interest. I can't say I have seen that claim validated so far," although he added that the decision has gone on "long enough."

    Looks like it makes sense with his other quote. At least one of them has come to their senses.

    Ya think?

    I hope it's Copps. He isn't helping otherwise, so he might as well crack the whip to get other people moving.

    And nice PPS. I'd like to see the 4.6 forming, and I think it's trying to, but SIRI is climbing mostly due to short squeeze.
