Surprise, Surprise~ Thomas Friedman of the New York Times thinks it's time to regulate Google~
In the past few months, Google has come under investigation by antitrust regulators in Europe. Rivals have accused Google of placing the Web sites of affiliates like Google Maps or YouTube at the top of Internet searches and relegating competitors to obscurity down the list. In the United States, Google said it expects antitrust regulators to scrutinize its $700 million purchase of the flight information software firm ITA, with which it plans to enter the online travel search market occupied by Expedia, Orbitz, Bing and others.
I think it's pathetic and is indicative of the everybody gets a trophy mentality. You have to put the reigns on innovation because you don't know how to make it work for you. IMO, it just promotes mediocrity in any industry when you have the government telling you how to operate the private sector.

Recognizing mediocrity, one trophy at a time. LOL. Who should we bestow the honor of a new motto? I can think of plenty of things the government has control of that fit this description. Funny and sad at the same time.
