        I do have to admit that Neustar has some bizarre ideas for increasing revenue.  This just came across and makes me wonder if they've lost their minds...
Neustar Charges States, Cities for .US Names
Prior to the .us landrush, Neustar reserved a load of domain names corresponding to state and city names and official state mottos. It's now making them available for registration by the relevant states and cities... for a price. Three-year registration: USD$168.00. Five-year registration: USD$180.00. Lifetime registration: USD$395.00.  

After the "Buy .US, fight terrorism" campaign, I didn't think I could be more offended.  Fool me once..........well, you know the rest.
