       Perspective: Don't get mad, get even

       WASHINGTON -- The National Rifle Association rates politicians on
       whether they support the Second Amendment.
       Emily's List gives campaign cash to pro-choice Democratic women. The
       Club for Growth supports politicos who pledge to lower taxes and limit
       government, while aiming to defeat tax-and-spenders.
       Is it time for the technology industry to come up with a similar way
       to reward friends and punish enemies?
       There's certainly good reason for it. Over the last two years, U.S.
       Congress has considered a series of benighted plans to regulate,
       restrict and otherwise hamstring technology.
