Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:

You report that “U.S. antitrust enforcers have begun looking at the terms Apple Inc. set this week for media companies who want to sell their content on its popular iPad” (“Regulators Eye Apple Anew,” Feb. 18).

This fact proves one of the rules of modern Washington (and Brussels): a private firm’s success in a commercial market attracts officious bureaucrats as surely as a chocolate cake at a picnic attracts voracious ants.  And in both cases, these creatures’ ravenous appetites damage the objects of their attention.
