Highlighting the ObviousFrom the Financial Times to the Washington Post. When you're hot, you're hot.
The Washington Post actually printed one of my letters today. It commented on a May 8 article in the Post (that I wrote about then) that made the shocking argument that Bush's policies favor business.
Highlighting the Obvious
Says the headline: "In Bush's Policies, Business Wins" [news story, Feb. 8]. As my children would say: "Duh!" From the first piece of major legislation he signed -- the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's ergonomics standard in March 2001 -- to the president's recent victory in the battle for his business-friendly Medicare reform, this administration has been pro-business as far as the eye can see. I don't know whether I should feel happy that your paper has finally headlined this obvious conclusion or sad that it has taken more than three years for it to get there.
