Back when the AM power proceeding was before the FCC, Johnny Johnston and 
his henchmen declared that preserving historic AM power levels under the new 
rf output power standard would have made the rules overly complicated.

Look how easily the Canadian government was able to do it.

Does that mean that people who live north of the border are smarter than 
people who live to the south?
