... and here I thought you were making comment on exercising under the influence of recreational drugs.
Please explain. The only "comparison" I made is that they're both highly regulated, which I don't see as "woefully inaccurate."
Perhaps it is public sector action which CAUSES oligopolies? Think about the highest regulated sectors in this country: finance, energy, and telecom come to mind. These are consistently sectors in which companies have huge market share, there is little competition.... and, oh, they tend to be the scourge of the general public.

I would love to see more large companies protest Congressional action with "blackouts" or something along those lines so that the populace at large becomes more...
