LEAVE THE LIMOUSINES ALONE: Limousines and black livery vehicles are an age-old target of government do-gooders, regulators, and spiteful bureaucrats. Chauffeurs at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport delivered a strong, anti-regulatory message Friday by borrowing a tactic from the unions. STORY HERE. It appears as if the longstanding discrimination that favors cabs has pushed operators to the breaking point.

The protest proves that the chauffeured transportation industry must remain vigilant and exert whatever pressure possible to bring government officials and regulators to the table. Fees and fines for operators have become excessive in cities and districts nationwide. A lot of educating is needed for the public sector busybody set. -- M.R.
