It seems that Google is slowly waking up to the grim reality of what happens to a company that puts a bee in a Senate Committee Chairman's bonnet.
Just ask Microsoft how ignoring Washington turned out for them (although everybody's lawyers sure have had a great decade).
In any event, the boys at Google have a tough PR sell in Washington. They have to convince the federal government that it's perfectly appropriate for Google to collect, control, sort and distribute every single last scrap of information in the human world.
Like we said, a tough sell.
But one that we would be happy to make on Google's behalf to a Senate Committee Chairman.
