Would this be affecting MIT, too?

I've been noticing some very odd connectivity issues
between here (Austin) and the CSAIL at MIT....

It would seem MCI and Wiltel around D.C. have a 'informal' peering 
relationship and it's been errored right now for about 39 hours with a 
half-duplex route announcement.  This has been effecting us with some loss 
of connectivity that's not there when we test same sites from other ISP 
clouds.  Since it's informal, the help desk system at one or both ands may 
be having problem entering a ticket w/o an account number for the circuit.

The usual channels are not producting results, and we're starting to get 
engineers on the lower end of the evoluationary food chain and finger 
pointing between wgc & mci that's not helping.  Tried a pch, haven't heard
