I can't get the su - -c "command" to work. How would I supply the password for su?

comment HOSTS file being ignored
Yes, actually, I found out there is a corporate proxy that is intercepting my requests and responding to them. Somehow it was bypassing my hosts file. If there was an entry in the corporate proxy it was overriding my local hosts file entry. While this answer didn't really tell "how" to fix the problem, it did identify the actual root cause of the problem (it's not the firewall...)
