Government asks: when can we shut down wireless service?

Nine months ago, a tremendous controversy began with a simple e-mail:

“Gentlemen, The BART Police require the M-Line wireless from the Trans Bay Tube Portal to the Balboa Park Station, to be shut down today between 4 pm & 8,” wrote Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) construction supervisor Dirk Peter on August 11, 2011. (The Transbay Tube runs beneath the Bay, moving people to and from San Francisco; Balboa Park is a residential city neighborhood.) “Steve,” the note continued, “please help to notify all carriers.”
