THE BEST CONGRESS MONEY CAN BUY: "The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights Act of 2008, which was blasted by consumer groups and library associations this week as an "enormous gift" to the content industry, won the approval of the Senate Judiciary Committee this afternoon by a 14-4 vote."
Okay, I'm not sure it's really the best, but it's definitely one that money can buy . . .
UPDATE: Reader Dean Macinskas emails:
Reminds me of that famous quote by P. J. O'Rourke:
"When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators. "
Which is how the legislators like it.
