More updates from my contact at Sprint and there's some interesting
factoids in here:

	"There are some locations east of the Rockies that are
experiencing issues. Sprint network control centers have multiple
bridges activated and are exploring restoration opportunities.  1,401
DS3s and 42 Sonet Rings impacted.  We have 3+ fiber techs at the cut
site.  It has not been confirmed if this is impacting multiple
carriers."

He followed up at 1717 Central to add, "20 of the 40 have been restored.
I was told the other 20 should be restored within an hour. I am trying
to confirm the ETR and to ensure it includes all the ds3s."
