Microsoft: Don't Make Excuses for the Government's Failings

Microsoft Corp. did not "catch a break" of any kind from the Bush Administration ("Did Microsoft catch a break?" Up Front, Mar. 12). The inability of government lawyers to field probing questions from the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals was attributable to weaknesses in the Justice Dept.'s case and the faulty underpinnings of Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson's holdings.

Continuity or fresh faces make no difference. The higher court is merely moving toward taking the overdue step of applying our antitrust law and reining in its gross misapplication by those who did not understand its purpose.
