It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Sergey Brin!

When, exactly, did the press decide that all our hope lies in the gutsier of the two Google co-founders? The issue of net neutrality (the fight against a haves/have-nots split for Internet content suppliers) depends on so many big players' input. But The Guardian, a paper usually not prone to Google-worship, gives the slightest of nods to Amazon and eBay's efforts before spending two paragraphs on Brin's ambassadorship to Washington.

It's as if the man didn't jet around in his Google plane all the time. And it's that sort of cockiness that makes the reminder so very harsh — Sergey-boy, no one cares about you in Washington.
