Can I get Amazon Prime to send me an infinite regress of drones inside boxes delivered by drones (hat tip to “turtles all the way…”)? If I can’t afford that how about an undead zombie from UPS or FedEx to deliver the complete “True Blood“? Jimmy Carter, not Reagan, started the deregulation thing back in the 1970s by getting rid of the Interstate Commerce Commission, which monitored interstate deliveries. But this Amazon drone thing gives rise to a thought: are we on the road to taking our deregulatory impulse a bit too far?
