Bush team rushing to deregulate

Rushing to avoid the same post-inauguration reversal of rule-making that they carried out eight years ago, the White House is pressing agencies throughout the government to finish up a wide range of deregulatory steps. Farms, mines and power plants are just some of the industries affected. This has been reported elsewhere in recent days, but today's Washington Post does an especially good job of putting the story in context. While you're at the website, note the especially heavy round of reader comments -- 508 by mid-morning.
