Attorney General Mayhem - Breaking Windows?!

The Massachusetts Attorney General is opposing the Microsoft lobbyist federal government's plan for the Microsoft settlement.

What a good idea! After all, anything that Microsoft will willingly accept will be completely ineffectual. Weak remedies and no teeth. I can't imagine Massachusetts getting less than they are getting with the existing agreement.

I wonder whether something like the proposed agreement would have worked with Hitler...

"We told you to be peaceful, but you took over Austria. As a result, you are to stop conquering countries for the next five years. If you decide to break that agreement by taking over Poland, we'll give you an extra two years during which time you are absolutely not to conquer France, Belgium, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Yugoslavia, Greece..."
