Dear Adam: You keep using that phrase "unfettered capitalism" ...
Apparently, a wide-open, free economy -- unchained by any of those annoying and counter-productive government regulations and where the market is free to "decide" almost anything -- is just the ticket when it comes to, say, making a corporate decision to boycott the Dixie Chicks from the airwaves, but it's an absolute travesty when it involves bookstores who might be taking a pass on stuff that makes Ann Coulter look positively thoughtful and nuanced.
I'd give that argument a little more thought if I were you, Adam. Consistency might be hard work, but it does pay big dividends in the end. Or so I've heard.
