Another brilliantly articulated article by Mr. Will.How I wish there
were more people with just a fraction of his common sense. Instead, tragically,
I fear there are fewer every year.
Thank you George Will for bringing to the fore the main problem of business
controlled government. The problem being the use of government force to create
economic favoritism for specific business or industries. Sort of
like the Utah state desire to apply taxes to products purchased from outside of
Utah. The object being to prevent any economic advantage to foreign sources and
thus defeat the operation of a free market. And since Utah provides no
representation for those foreign sources, the tax is contrary to the American
idea of no taxes without representation.
Gee, conflicts of interest in state government. Sounds like Utah.

There are a LOT of things where I see govt. regulation as necessary and proper
to protect the citizenry from chicanery and worse. But it is hard to see how
someone can get injured in the purchase of a casket (other than overpaying). As
long as the casket meets a reasonable construction standard (and since you can
buy them online) let it go.
