              The WALL STREET JOURNAL INTERACTIVE's Jennifer Rewick
         writes that VA-based PSINet Inc., the "once highflying and
         fast-growing" ISP, posted a "much wider loss" for its third
         quarter and "warned" that fourth quarter results "will be
         lower than expected."  PSINet Chair & CEO William Schrader
         said that the company "would sell some of its assets and
         reduce planned capital expenditures through next year"
         (WSJ.com, 11/3)....In Miami, Greg Cote writes that NetZero
         and Verizon Wireless are among finalists to acquire naming
         rights to Pro Player Stadium (MIAMI HERALD, 11/3).

  • LAST WEEKEND PUSH HAS NEW ANTI-ARENA COMMERCIAL IN HOUSTON

              A new anti-arena TV ad that is "general enough to be
         accurate, unlike previous" anti-arena TV ads, debuted in
         Houston yesterday, according to Eric Berger, of the HOUSTON
         CHRONICLE.  Paid for by the PAC Texans for Tax Limits, the
         ad states that public money should not be used for a private
         arena.  The ad is narrated by Texans for Tax Limits Chair
         Austen Furse, who says, "Why did we vote no on the arena
         last time?  We voted no because public money should not be
         used to build a private arena."  Furse, a former adviser to
         President Bush and a financial analyst, said that he and his
         family "paid most of the tab" for the commercial, without
         saying how much ad time was purchased.  Meanwhile, political
         analysts said that "anti-arena ads would have been more
         effective a month or more ago, before the pro-arena campaign
         began running a barrage of commercials focusing on a central
         message of no new taxes" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 11/3).

  • STREET GOES WITH HURRY UP OFFENSE ON PHILLY STADIUM DEAL

              With two weeks to complete a stadium deal for the
         Eagles and Phillies, Philadelphia Mayor John Street has
         resumed his "urgent quest," and it appears that he has
         "abandoned hopes" of a Phillies ballpark at the 12th and
         Vine Street location near downtown and is "eyeing" a site in
         South Philadelphia, according to Dave Davies of the
         PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS.  City Council President Anna Verna
         said that stadium bills will have to be ready by November 16
         at "the latest" if Street wants them to be passed this year. 
         While "intense technical work" is under way, talks between
         the city and the Eagles and Phillies "haven't resumed."  But
         sources told Davies that "the focus is on South
         Philadelphia" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 11/3).
