You just can't make this stuff up

The FCC Kidzone is where all the cool kids go for their communications regulation news. This week the kids learn about the wonder of the no-call list -- that's why dinners are no longer interrupted,because of the magnanimity of the FCC (and FTC, too). What the FCC missed, however, is that those solicitor calls were when little Johnny fed his peas to the dog and thus "ate" his vegetables. Damn FCC.

If that's not enough though, the aspiring kindergarten teachers at the FCC explain wireless number portability to the kids. Wow! We get to pay to avoid lock-in effects--the market would have never internalized those costs. Thanks FCC.
