White House Reportedly Plans To Name Amazon Foe Lina Khan To FTC

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: US President Joe Biden is reportedly planning to nominate antitrust scholar Lina Khan to the Federal Trade Commission, a move that would indicate his administration is open to aggressive antitrust regulation not only generally but specifically against Amazon and other Big Tech firms. At present, Khan is an associate law professor at Columbia Law School. Khan vaulted directly to antitrust superstardom in 2017 while she was still a law student...

Banning Major and Champ from the White House is a bunch of malarkey

Come on, man! The first shelter dog to live in the White House, Major the German shepherd, has entered and exited as if through a revolving door, writes Carol Bryant. There are many things that can be done if dogs show signs of aggression or unruly behavior; banishing them from their "mom" and "dad" shouldn't be one of them.
