I thought comparing Google to big oil companies was a bit funny at first. Then I realized some politician might take this whole thing seriously. Next thing we know some “study” will have been done, Congressional investigations will be underway, and porky-types will be jockeying to tack their “Outhouse For Everyone In My District” project onto some crazy regulations regarding caching public webpages. We’ll all be out a couple hundred million more dollars, and only the search results will suffer. Arghh!
