Go, Read: Jacob Weisberg On Amazon And Sales Tax

It's sort of not-comics, but the implications of this article in terms of the long-standing back-and-forth between the on-line retailing giant and brick-and-mortar bookstores and comics shops seem pretty clear. What always scares me about policy-shaping articles like this one is that this policy was shaped in opposition to an almost ravenous primary function of government as it relates to business: tax collecting. It makes you wonder about other areas of undue influence or possible unfair policy that don't have such a strong force placed opposite.
