Reminded of Harrison Bergeron

Canvassing Fairness
Washington Times, July 22, 2008, at 24.

If the Fairness Doctrine ("Keep free speech free," Editorial, July 11) makes it onto President Bush's desk for signature, he should sign it immediately. With Sen. Barack Obama raising more money and spending more on advertising, this will give Sen. John McCain an opportunity to rebut everything via a commercial of his own - even if he cannot afford it. That is only "fair," after all.

I am sure this government-mandated "Air America" will be as popular as the original and destined to the same fate.
