Can't Make This Up Department

So Bill Gates wants to improve education by introducing competition and the "magic of the marketplace".

That's right- that Bill Gates. The guy who achieved a monopoly position in the software market and has used his financial clout to pre-load a substandard Windows on every computer sold for the past fifteen years.

But this time things will be different, he swears. He's a philanthropist, not a businessman in this role, and when it comes to decisions that affect somebody else's life, he's all in favor of competition.

'Twas ever thus.
