DO NOT CALL, REALLY

CNN has the news:

The House of Representatives on Thursday granted the Federal Trade Commission authority to create a national “do-not-call” list for telemarketers on Thursday and the Senate is expected to follow suit.

The quick action comes a day after a federal judge ruled the FTC needed a congressional mandate to create the wildly popular list.

I thought it would take days. Of course, there’s still the Senate and the President. With the weekend coming up. . . .

Laurence Simon has an amusing reaction.
