to MotleyFooley--Thank you thank you thank you...why everyone denigrates regulation like it doesn't serve some good purpose, I cannot fathom.

It's really not hard to fathom. Some of us judge regulation based on results instead of intentions.

Oh, and re: regulation of doctors and health care system...I'm glad they have regulations or else someone like Michael Jackson's or Anna Nicole Smith's doctors would be the norm rather than the exception. I would like to think my doctor went into the profession to help mankind and uphold the hippocratic oath rather than just to make money. Am I naive?

So are you one of those people who thinks businesses have no financial incentive to please customers?
