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.

The Monks may have to follow the lead of many ex-U.S. business' and relocate in another country, like Mexico.

Gee, conflicts of interest in state government. Sounds like Utah.

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.

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.
