Here We Are Now, Entertain Regulate Us

The NYT has a story today about industry seeking, rather than fighting, new regulation.  In addition to possibly heading off tougher (and/or inconsistent) state and local regulations, this is, of course, potentially helpful due to the Bush administration's ongoing preemption efforts.  If you want a particular subject matter preempted, there needs to in fact be a regulation to do the preemption heavy lifting...and industry might rather the industry be written by this administration than an unknown future administration. 

(The Pump Handle's post echoes this idea.)
