Perhaps, it's because I live in the "land of the mental dwarf," but I have written letters to the editor in a Republican rag challenging anyone to justify past deregulations... I never got a reply. The challenge applies here, too. Please defend dergulation of any utilities or services that are cumpulsory to one's existance. Yet, the lobbyists sit before Congress and espouce the joys of deregulation on a weekly basis.
